In the recent days environmental problems are being given a lot of importance and measures are being sought to reduce the carbon emission, emitted by the fuelled-vehicles. Various governments across the world are looking at measures are conducting research to identify methods and means to reduce the carbon emission emitted by different modes of transport.

With regard to this our Prime Minister has made a commitment at the COP26 Summit in Glasgow. With regard to this India’s commitment to encourage green fuels was initiated by launching the National Hydrogen Mission on India’s 75th Independence Day. The Ministry of Power, New and Renewable Energy has worked tirelessly to introduce the green hydrogen policy and to push the bill forward to promote the use of non-fossil fuels, which includes green hydrogen, ethanol and biomass. Strict measures have been taken to ensure it is adopted across key sectors.

One of the key contributors to Carbon footprint is the automobile sector and hence the automotive vehicles will require huge investment in electric and hydrogen engines. People at large these days are willing to opt for hybrid vehicles as they also want to commute in vehicles which do not generate much carbon. These new-age vehicles run on both gas and electricity, which reduces the amount of fossil fuel used.

 The purpose of this paper is to identify the different modes of E-commuting that can replace the fuelled-vehicles to reduce the pollution of the environment. A structured questionnaire was prepared and circulated and the respondents were from the IT Sector in Bangalore City.

A Random Sample and convenience sampling method was used and the data collected was analysed with the help of Chi-Square Method.

In this paper an attempt has been made to suggest certain measures that can be adopted which can help reduce the quantum of carbon dioxide that is being emitted by fuelled-vehicles which are used for commuting.  The focus in this paper has been on Green commuting.
