In today's business world, businesses can no longer ignore their impact on the environment. Companies must face up to this problem and find solutions and opportunities to reduce costs and emissions. Businesses need to recognize their role in safety, quality of life and health. Green Transport Week celebrates sustainable mobility, and we recommend following these tips to get your company's fleet involved in the celebration and help your company stay ahead of the curve.
Measure your fleet's carbon footprint: To reduce your fleet's carbon footprint, you need to measure it. To calculate your fleet's carbon footprint, you need access to the annual fuel consumption information for each vehicle in your fleet.
Calculate the carbon emissions of fleet vehicles: Diesel: Multiply the number of diesel liters by 2.63 and divide by 1000. Petrol cars: Multiply the liters of gasoline by 2.32 and divide by 1000.
With this knowledge, you can set emission reduction targets you wish to achieve and a timeline for achieving them. First, reduce emissions by a set percentage each year.
Eco-friendly through fleet management: Drivers need to drive more environmentally friendly. A stable and smooth driving style is not only more environmentally friendly, but also more fuel-efficient. Do not speed or brake sharply in heavy traffic.
Choose less polluting vehicles for your fleet – Promote vehicles with low CO2 emissions.
The vehicle requires regular maintenance; Poorly maintained vehicles consume more fuel and have higher emissions.
Analyze and record business trips so you can identify opportunities to reduce miles.
Personal fuel consumption needs to be recorded to encourage energy-efficient driving.
To enable drivers to avoid congestion and use the most efficient routes, promote technologies such as satellite navigation and fleet management.
Alternatives to business travel, such as phone/video conferencing, should be considered as possible alternatives.
Implementing a green fleet policy is not difficult. Not only does it reduce your company's environmental impact, but it is also an effective way to reduce fleet costs and address corporate social responsibility issues. Therefore, choose to make a change this year's Green Transport Week.
