Green Fleets are fleets that try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Every single driver is trained to develop a driving culture that utilises a fleet’s cars and vans in a way that’s effective, particularly when it comes to fuel efficiency. 

Green fleets are also cost effective. It has been shown that when given enough attention, their environmental impact is massively decreased. This makes them incredibly cost effective; apply the environmentally friendly driving culture to a vehicle with low emissions and it becomes very affordable to run, saving companies significant amounts of money.

The green agenda set by the government has influenced company taxation policies. Both corporate and employee taxation policy is now largely based on CO2 emissions, which hugely benefits fleets that are carbon efficient; especially when those emissions go below 160g/km.

Training drivers into how to drive green is an absolutely vital part of keeping emissions low, perhaps even more so than the car itself. Even the greenest of vehicles can only perform as well as they are driven, which is why eco driving is so effective. Fuel consumption can even be improved by a total of 15%, just by making some simple changes.

It is recommended that a green fleet use satellite navigation systems in order to avoid heavily congested roads and chart the most direct and efficient route to the driver’s destination. Installing telematics also helps you reduce mileage by recording and then analysing business travel. It is also very important to check tyre pressures regularly, as not doing so is not only dangerous but can drastically alter fuel consumption.

Here are some top tips for managing a greener fleet:

  • Promote cars with low CO2 to reduce NIC and employee’s car tax bills
  • Ensure that your vehicles are properly maintained and serviced on a regular basis
  • Report and analyse individual fuel consumption for fuel efficient driving
  • Identify opportunities to reduce mileage by recording and analysing business travel
  • Encourage a culture of safe and economic driving through the use of training and awareness campaigns.
