In Ireland, the transport sector accounts for around 18% of total national emissions.
Despite significant improvements in vehicle efficiency since 1990, the sector has seen its emissions increase by 112.2% during this period, driven by strong economic growth and subsequent increased car and commercial vehicle use.
This guide looks at key areas for consideration in a business with a significant transport / logistic function, including:
- Fleet Efficiency Measures;
- Combustion Engine Alternatives;
- Alternative Fuels;
- Social Sustainability.
Each section has a number of recommendations that can be incorporated into your business to reduce fossil fuel usage and the overall environmental and social impact of operations.
In the Transport Sustainability Guide, commissioned by AIB, find out more about the Greener HGV Programme and how the combined use of innovative telematics technology from Cubo and driver training can help companies lower their fuel spend and improve their carbon footprint.
