How to make your fleet more environmentally friendly

According to the European climate law, EU countries must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. The goal is to make the EU climate neutral by 2050.

Climate neutrality by 2050 means achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions in EU countries as a whole, mainly through reducing emissions, investing in green technologies and protecting the natural environment.

For companies with a large carbon and/or methane footprint, this largely means redesigning production processes, as well as using other measures to achieve carbon offset targets.
All basic economic sectors must contribute to reducing emissions: energy; transport, construction, industrial and agriculture.

Small steps lead to big changes
Fleet management system allows to analyze the use of your fleet

In order to understand how efficiently your car park is used, you need data – how many cars are actually in use and where, what is the vehicle’s fuel consumption and maintenance needs, how efficiently the routes are planned, how much of vehicle’s working time is spent on idling and how economical are the drivers driving styles.

Based on the results of the analysis, it is possible to focus on the most important pain points – be it the training of drivers and the improvement of driving style or a more effective solution of task management according to the location of vehicles and the optimization of routes.

Invest in a modern fleet
At first glance, a new car park may seem like a huge expense, but when making an investment, it is necessary to look at the bigger picture, how quickly the investment will pay off. Newer vehicles are more environmentally friendly as well as generally more economical, not to mention electric cars, which have a higher purchase price, but a much more favorable price per kilometer (also in the case of increased electricity prices) and a smaller ecological footprint.

Economical driving style saves up to 25% fuel
Eco-driving is an economical way of driving, i.e. using the vehicle in a way that consciously and consistently reduces fuel consumption and wear and tear on the vehicle itself. A holistic approach to both driving style and vehicle management, with the aim of having the smallest possible ecological footprint.

Some tips on how to save fuel consumption and drive more environmentally friendly:

  • Warm up the car while driving, not whyle staying in one place
  • Try to avoid sudden braking and stopping
  • Use low engine speeds
  • In traffic, try to anticipate maneuvers in advance
  • Stop the engine if stopped for more than 20 seconds
  • Check the tire pressure, lower pressure increases fulen consumption

Regular maintenance
A well-functioning engine produces fewer emissions and uses less fuel. Fleet management helps you stay up to date with the vehicle maintenance schedule
