About this Resource

Corporate carbon reporting makes no distinction around business travel, bundling together emissionsfrom all forms of company transport whether air, rail or vehicle fleets. With almost 30 million vehiclesregistered in the UK, carbon emissions from road transport represents 22% of the UK’s total carbonfootprint (Sustainable Development Commission).

The use of vehicles on company business may contribute significantly to a business’ overall carbonfootprint. A carbon focused review of vehicle use, choice and driver management could potentiallyresult in a triple win – a reduction in costs, carbon emissions and collisions.
