SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. - August 23, 2007 - CellTrust Corporation www.celltrust.com, the leading secure mobile information management and delivery provider, today announced it has partnered with Carbonfund.org www.carbonfund.org to take its carbon offsetting support to the mobile phone. CellTrust chose Carbonfund.org, a non-profit organization that promotes climate change education, carbon offsets, and clean energy solutions, to give travelers worldwide another method of supporting their carbon offsetting programs of choice when they sign up online for mobile flight alerting services at www.flightassist.com.
In the past, travelers have been given the opportunity to offset their flight when they purchase a ticket. Now, for the first time with FlightAssist they are provided a "second chance" and opportunity to carbon offset their flight at the mobile flight tracking and alerting stage.
"Using the mobile phone to fight adverse climate change while making travel more efficient for friends and family is a creative new approach," said Carbonfund.org's Chief Operating Officer Steve Offutt. "I applaud CellTrust's desire to improve our environment, both through offsetting its own carbon footprint and by enabling its customers and partners to also positively impact our environment."
Carbonfund.org's goal is to help transform the energy market from one based mostly on dirty energy-like coal-to one based on clean energy-like wind. By utilizing FlightAssist as a strategic conduit, Carbonfund.org gives travelers who want to make an environmental difference the ability to join Carbonfund in this mission directly from their mobile phones.
Echoing Offutt's sentiment for environmental change, CellTrust CEO Sean Moshir notes, "CellTrust can innovate the mobile platform while supporting positive environmental change. We are excited to join the Carbonfund.org team and expect to be an active partner for years to come."
According to an excerpt from The Power to Protect Our Climate, World Wildlife Fund www.wwf.org Director of Climate Change Program Jennifer Morgan explains, "Rarely in human history have scientists spelt out such dire warnings with enough time and technology to respondâ€¦It's time for governments, the power sector, and business to get serious and urgently start a shift from coal to clean, renewable energy sources."
Travelers using a mobile phone with a SMS-enabled (short message service) account can access carbon-offsetting information at Carbonfund.org through the online FlightAssist service, which currently supports data from 16,084 airports and 1,398 airlines, at www.flightassist.com. For a limited period, travelers can utilize FlightAssist for free by entering a promotional code, 123123. Easy-to-access and use, FlightAssist also includes the ability to send flight information and alerts simultaneously to a "Circle of Friends" through multi-contact notification.
