7 Tips to Help Reduce Your Emissions during Your Commute

By July 2, 2018 No Comments

As a service business with a fleet of vehicles, your employees are on the road a lot, which means they’re contributing to air pollution.

To help you become a greener business, here are 7 tips to help you reduce your driving emissions:

  • Parallel park
  • Lower your engine idle time
  • Turn right more often
  • Turn off your air conditioner before you get to your location
  • Reduce your speed
  • Work four days instead of five
  • Consider switching to a Toyota Prius

When your drivers hit the road, do you know if they’re excessively idling their vehicles or speeding to their next location? If you aren’t monitoring their driving behavior, it’s safe to say you don’t.

And that’s why a fleet management solution is important. With a GPS fleet tracking solution and alerts functionality, you can create Idle Alerts to notify you when a driver has surpassed the daily idle allowance. Not only that, you can create Speed Alerts that let you know the moment one of your drivers exceeds the speed limit.

So how will reducing your emissions benefit your business? Aside from being a greener business, it may help you win more green bids and provide a competitive differentiator.
