Fleet sustainability practices for 2020
A new study predicts a promising future for electric vehicles in Europe.
Sustainable fleet management is a central concern for many organizations and businesses. No longer a buzzword, you will see sustainability highlighted at fleet conferences this year, incorporated into training programs and featured in news feeds.
The real-world impacts of climate change and strong consumer interest in the environment, especially among younger generations, underline the need for meaningful action. Companies are taking a hard look at how their vehicle fleet is impacting the environment, in addition to their other performance metrics. Increasing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions also have economic and social benefits that extend beyond the business.
Geotab introduces new sustainability pillar
At Connect 2020 in San Diego, Geotab introduced a new pillar of innovation: Sustainability. Although this is a new announcement, for many years, fleets have been using MyGeotab to help reduce their carbon footprint.
How does telematics help increase fleet sustainability? In particular, fleets can use the Geotab open platform for fleet management for these different goals as a start:
- Reduce vehicle idling and fuel use
- Track and decrease CO2 emissions
- Cut down on unnecessary miles driven with smarter routing
- Choose the best fit electric vehicles
- Monitor EV energy usage and charging
The fleet sustainability infographic
Green fleets undertake a range of initiatives, from policy to proactive tracking, to reduce their environmental impact. We created this infographic to illustrate the top areas to focus on for fleet sustainability. For more details about the newest pillar, visit our sustainability page.
