We know sustainability is good for the environment, but is it good for business? Proof of the synergy between the two came in a February 2013 global study.
One sure sign your fleet is serious about its green efforts is a membership in the Coalition for Green Management. This certification tells the world that your fleet values its environmental stewardship.
The feature story in the January/February issue of Green Fleet magazine is titled, Best Practices in Emission-Reduction. It’s a good read—all about fleets and their real-world strategies for reducing emissions like using flex fuels, adding all-electric vehicles to the fleet, switching to four-cylinder engines and integrating telematics.
However, the article omitted one emission-reduction strategy that makes dollars and sense for fleets.
For a fleet manager, understanding the exact — or even approximate — environmental impact of a large vehicle fleet is important to you. While there are numerous ways in which to make greener the day-to-day and long-term operations of a fleet, it’s also helpful to be aware of a few key figures, particularly estimated carbon emissions, before you start making any major decisions that will ultimately help to reduce the need for foreign oil and drilling while improving a company’s carbon footprint.
