TMC carbon and cost-saving system wins Energy Savings Trust Fleet Hero Award

TMC’s new system for reducing fleet emissions and fuel bills has scooped the coveted Innovation prize at the Energy Savings Trust Fleet Hero Awards.

Paul Jackson, managing director of fuel and mileage control specialist TMC said:

“To win this high profile award for our new Carbon Reporting System is a great honour. We’re delighted that the Energy Saving Trust has recognised the fantastic potential of this practical, low-cost tool for tackling fuel costs and carbon emissions, especially at a time when the pressure on fleets to reduce costs on fuel and mileage is greater than ever.”

The TMC Carbon Reporting system helps companies to enlist car fleet drivers in long term plans to cut fuel and carbon emissions.

Based on each employee driving 10,000 miles per year, a 5 per cent CO2 reduction target, managed using TMC's system, would reduce a 500-driver fleet's emissions by 1,800 tonnes over five years, saving nearly £1 million in fuel costs.

One major UK fleet, Interserve Project Services Limited, is using TMC Carbon Reporting in a programme designed to cut annual fuel purchasing costs for its 1,300 drivers by 23 per cent over five years without affecting the company’s productivity and service levels.

Philip Sellwood, chief Executive of the Energy Saving Trust commented:

“Congratulations to TMC for winning the Energy Saving Trust Fleet Hero Award for Innovation Services and Systems. The Fleet Hero Awards highlights those who have not only taken steps to help the environment but also to save money and resources.”
