EST launches free online transport carbon footprinting tool
The “Fleet Health Check Online” tool provides organisations with an accurate business transport carbon footprint, as well as recommendations for next steps to help reduce costs and emissions.
The tool has been designed for easy use, with organisations just needing to answer a few questions about their fleet.
The service is free and the EST says its advice is completely impartial.
David Watts, fleet partnership manager at Energy Saving Trust, said: ‘Organisations are under increasing pressure to reduce fleet emissions and operating costs. Our new carbon footprinting service has been developed to help employers understand the impact of their transport operations and take steps towards reducing emissions.
‘It costs approximately £600 to create a tonne of CO2 from road transport – nearly twice as much as from electricity. Small changes to an organisation’s transport carbon footprint could have a greater impact than making changes in any other business area.’
