Route one to greener transport

Some emissions management actions have to be long-term measures, such as vehicle procurement strategies. Others can be carried out in the medium term, such rigorous service scheduling and preventative maintenance.

Steve Clarke, group marketing manager, The Fuelcard People:“Some emissions reduction measures can be implemented immediately. These include training personnel in economical driving techniques and offering incentives for lower individual fuel consumptions. Even checking tyre pressures can help, as driving with incorrectly inflated tyres increases consumption and emissions. The most important action is to begin with measuring. If you do not know how high your emissions are, you can hardly know if you are reducing them.”

“Any business using road transport faces challenges in reducing its carbon footprint but counting, cutting and controlling vehicle emissions is the place to start. Being greener can be easier than you might have thought.”

How van users can monitor emissions

Van users can monitor emissions, vehicle by vehicle, across the whole fleet by using CO2Count. This service is available to any customer of The Fuelcard People and offers a fleet-wide emissions analysis alongside every routine invoice. For a nominal sum, firms can track CO2, NOx and CH4 emissions.
