Marawid would like to draw attention to the environmental benefits of cycling. This is important because GHG emissions are projected to increase faster from personal vehicles than any other GHG contributor, increasing 80% between 2007 and 2030. In addition, Mawarid would like to show how Marrakech could benefit from building infrastructure that would allow more modes of sustainable transportation. In order to do this there has to be some way to track the pollution savings of riding vs. driving. Marawid is working with experts another company to construct with a basic equation that would relate the pollution per mile for a car vs. bike.
This is a great tool and a good place to start when looking into the cost benefit ratio dealing with automobile pollution. However, there are a lot of assumptions that have to be made when looking into a benefits equation. Marawid is on track working with a third party company to make a workable equation that will fit the needs for the company.
