No corporate taxes for car sharing platforms to encourage car sharing

The car industry and associated industries are the cause of many emmissions due to their production. Their products (private cars) however are parked more than 95% of the time.
A solution to this are the car shareing platforms (e.g. Kinto in Sweden). If prices of cars booked via these platforms can be reduced, many people choose to use such platforms instead of buying an own car.
This has a direct and big impact on the emmussions due to car production. We should therefore support such platforms so they can offer their cars to customers at much reduced prices. A simple step to do this is to relief them from paying corporate taxes.

        Finding innovative solutions to address these concerns could contribute to fostering a more environmentally friendly transportation landscape.

          The decision of whether or not to exempt car-sharing platforms from corporate taxes requires careful consideration of its potential effects on the economy, environment, and society at large.

            That would be such a smart move! Similarly, in general reducing the VAT for products that have a lower ecological footprint (e.g. organic produce, plastic free products, vegan food, products without packaging etc.) could lower their retail price and thus strongly incentivize people to switch to these greener alternatives.

              That's a good idea, but I doubt the current Swedish government will start caring about the climate now
