Ward realizes the impact fleets have on the environment with greenhouse gases (GHG) and other air pollutants. Our Go Green Fleet program utilizes our complete suite of products to support corporate and government environmental initiatives.
Our team of Go Green Fleet specialists work closely with fleet managers to develop customized solutions that help reduce vehicles’ environmental impact and strengthen operating performance.
Through Go Green Fleet, managers have the resources to reduce emissions through improved driver behavior, proactive maintenance and scheduling, advanced data capture, and detailed reporting.
Idling for more than 10 seconds uses more gas and emits more CO2 than restarting your vehicle. Go Green Fleet provides the resources to monitor location and length of vehicle idling and reduce emissions.
Improve Vehicle Efficiency
Ward Go Green helps control operating conditions and the use of specific fleet vehicles to help lower operating costs, CO2 emissions, improve safety, utilization, and compliance. Go Green Fleet provides proactive maintenance with notifications when a fleet vehicle needs or is scheduled for maintenance.
Influence Driver Behavior
Improved driver behavior results in better fuel economy. By employing technology that will monitor driver behavior, Go Green Fleet can decrease fuel usage and overall miles driven by measuring the impact of driver behavior on fuel economy
Decrease GHG Emissions
Go Green Fleet provides accurate data for GHG emission tracking through the Ward Automated Fuel Management suite and Fuel View Software reports. By measuring the carbon footprint of each vehicle, fleet managers can analyze options to mitigate emissions and reach reduction goals and offset GHG emissions.
Greenhouse Gas Terminology
Total (GHG) Emissions
Total GHG Emissions is the best measurement to access overall environmental impact. The data required to calculate total GHG is the volume of fuel consumed.
GHG Per Vehicle
GHG per Vehicle can be the average performance of a particular vehicle or the total fleet. Fuel source, miles traveled, and fuel economy are influencing factors. The data required includes total emissions and the number of vehicles in a fleet.
GHG Per Ton of Freight Moved
GHG as a cargo-based measurement metric quantifies the efficiency of moving goods. By using tons rather than pallets, fleets ensure their metrics are consistent internally and externally. The minimum data required to calculate is total emissions and tons of freight moved.
GHG Per Miles Traveled
Miles Traveled is a leading factor in determining vehicle emissions. This measurement metric allows managers to consider mileage as a metric including GHG per specific mileage quantity. The minimum data required to calculate is total emissions and total miles.
