2020 Fleet Sustainability Ranking by Industry


Automotive industry achieves the biggest decrease in diesel share

All industries have continued to decrease their diesel share over the past two years, but there are significant variations in pace. The Automotive industry has achieved the largest decline in diesel share, but F&PS still has the lowest share with less than 50%. Whilst still having a large share of diesel, the Technology industry is now catching up, decreasing its diesel share almost as fast as the F&PS industry.


BEV share has increased as much as tenfold in the past 2 years


Energy & Chemicals and Technology industries lead PHEV adoption


The introduction of WLTP in 2018 has increased CO2 levels

The rise in the average CO2 level is mainly caused by the transition to WLTP, the increased popularity of SUVs and the increased popularity of petrol vehicles. E&C is the only industry with lower CO2 levels due to a relatively high share of diesels being replaced by either BEVs or hybrids. The increase in the Construction industry is remarkably high. This is mainly caused by a relatively large share of small vehicles.
