Besides the choice of vehicle and fuel type, drivers themselves play a key role in the actual emissions level in practice. As the basis for monitoring performance, you can gather fuel-consumption data aided by a driver fuel card scheme and/or telematics. To make employees aware of the impact of their driving behaviour on the CO2 emissions level, share your insights with them in the form of (online) fuel-consumption reports or dashboards, and organise training sessions to encourage fuel-efficient driving. Such sessions can include tips such as:
- Always ask yourself ‘Do I really need to make this journey?’ Consider the possibility to work from home and/or organise a teleconference
- Avoid carrying unnecessary or non-aerodynamic loads (fuel consumption can increase by 4.7% per extra 100kg)
- Maintain the correct tyre pressure and switch from winter to summer tyres as soon as possible.
Summing up, reducing the CO2 emissions of your fleet not only helps to preserve our planet but also saves your company money. At LeasePlan, we are happy to help you reduce your CO2 emissions. For more details, please contact your local LeasePlan representative.
