The Drivers The Drivers
Drivers have the most important role in achieving good results and improving the environmental performance of the fleet. Even the most frugal cars or vans will give poor cost and emissions results if badly driven. Employees who drive as even just a small part of their job functions need to be motivated and directed to consider and implement good driving techniques at least during their time driving on company business.
A common complaint is that drivers are poor at returning mileage and fuel reports. Any good policy needs a constant feed of real data to ensure that the performance delivered is meeting expectations. The reporting system to get this information from all drivers on a regular basis is a key part of a green fleet policy.
