For fleet managers, reducing GHGs starts with an accurate understanding of how much their fleet emits in the first place. This is where GHG reporting comes in. Utilimarc’s GHG analytics takes data from different sources to help fleets measure and report their emissions. This could be at a higher level or down to the details of which vehicles, classes, and fuel types are contributing the most.
Many fleets today have their own reasons for needing accurate GHG reporting. It could be to monitor the implementation of EVs or alternative fuels, or simply to understand which vehicles are contributing most to their overall emissions. Regardless of the reason, there are several ways a fleet could benefit.
An emissions profile is a powerful tool for supporting fleet sustainability initiatives. The profile closely details a fleet or organization’s total carbon emissions within a certain period of time. This profile includes emissions from activities ranging from energy generation, fuel consumption and other daily operations.
The common goal of fleet sustainability is twofold. First, to adopt practices that protect the wellbeing and future of the world around us. Second, to ensure the future success of your organization. This is appealing for organizations striving to be more conscientious with their practices while still reducing waste and costs internally.
Greenhouse gas reporting –also known as carbon accounting– is becoming more common at organizations, whether by requirement or done voluntarily for transparency. These reports measure how much emissions the organization emitted in a period, breaking it down into which activities contributed what amount and exactly which GHGs were emitted.
Low emission zones are common throughout Europe and the UK, with over 250 protected European cities as of 2019. Though not as common in the United States, these EU cities provide a blueprint for the future of LEZs around the world.
With so many short- and long-term environmental and economic benefits of a large-scale switch to electric technology, more businesses and governments on all levels are pledging to achieve net-zero emissions in the upcoming few decades.
