8 best practices of top performing sustainable companies and fleets

By Verizon Connect Team July 19, 2022

Sustainability has become an essential pillar of a company's reputation as well as competitiveness. Sustainable companies and their vehicle fleets have a culture in which their activities, operations and impact revolve around a "green commitment" that prioritises the reduction of fuel consumption, the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and efficiency in all their operations.

Increasingly, both the public and government agencies are demanding companies' commitment to sustainability. When it comes to the economic and environmental impacts of climate change, New Zealand feels the strain quite easily.

Despite the country only being responsible for a small proportion of the total greenhouse gas emissions (less than 0.3%), the country actually has the 12th highest level of emissions per person in the developed world. This is why New Zealand can benefit from working together with other countries and taking part in negotiations for international climate change.

For many companies fleet sustainability is a new business model. Sustainable companies are committed to the reduction of the environmental, economic, and social impact of their operations. This not only establishes their core values but also helps to keep them competitive and able to meet their customer’s needs. 

Here are some ways you can make your fleet more sustainable:

  • Use advanced fleet management solutions: Take control of your daily business and help boost efficiency in all your operations     
  • Address vehicle carbon footprint: Measure each vehicle’s carbon footprint, enabling you to monitor and lower the emissions generated by your overall fleet     
  • Reduce fuel consumption: According to the Fleet Technology Trends Survey , companies that adopted GPS Fleet Tracking saw improvements, such as 52% of respondents reduced fuel consumption        
  • Teach eco-driving techniques to drivers: Making use of a telematics solution can help promote safety and can help increase efficiency in your team     
  • Top-notch routing: Well-planned driver routes can help reduce mileage, fuel use, and driving hours, and can help reduce unnecessary wear and tear on the vehicle     
  • Right size vehicle and fleet size: A GPS Tracking solution can help give a better overview of your real needs, operations, and daily activity     
  • Introduce new alternative fuels: EVs’ are at an early stage but there are more companies that are introducing electric vehicles in their fleets to become sustainable companies
