Going green: Is it the future of fleets?

On Behalf of | Jun 8, 2022 | Business & Commercial Law

In the past few years, there’s been a huge uptick in companies and industries adopting green technology. One area that’s falling behind in this initiative is fleets. Many fleet owners have doubts about how effective and efficient going green will be.

While this is true, green tech is the future, and now is the time for fleet owners to plan for its implementation into their operations. Not only is it set to help improve sustainability, but it can also help reduce the fleet’s overall carbon footprint.

Some effective ways for fleets to embrace green tech are found here.

Be realistic

It’s not possible to overhaul the fleet completely. A realistic way to start going green is by choosing vehicles that have a smaller impact on the environment. Even though trucks in a fleet may not be completely electric, fleet managers should take realistic steps to reduce the negative impact they have on the environment.

Government grants

By 2050, the U.S. government wants to significantly reduce emissions. Also, thanks to private partnerships, the government has created multiple grants for fleet managers to start using green tech. One of these is an incentive of as much as 35% off for purchasing and using electric trucks. Making these changes is also going to reduce the operating costs of your entire fleet while being good for the environment.

Driver training

It’s important to ensure your drivers are following green driving practices. This can result in up to a 20% savings in fuel use.

When it comes to green technology, there are more than a few things to consider. However, it provides several benefits for all companies and industries. It’s something that is worth looking into for fleets of all sizes.
