New greenhouse gas reporting tool for fleets

Zenith has created a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting tool to help its customers report on emissions and comply with the new GHG reporting regulations, which comes into force in October.

Zenith’s GHG tool has been designed to assist its customers with the new reporting obligations and provide a greater understanding of the impact of individual fleets on the environment.

The reporting shows GHG emissions across a whole fleet, by vehicle, by manufacturer and split out by greenhouse gas. GHGs are calculated from the actual fuel used where this is available.

The regulations allow for GHGs to otherwise be calculated by miles travelled and vehicle type. Reports can be exported to use as part of a Directors’ report.

The new regulations require UK companies that are listed on the London Stock Exchange to report on their greenhouse gas emissions as part of their annual Directors’ report.

It includes reporting on greenhouse gases including Methane and Nitrous Oxides, not just CO2 emissions.  Affected companies will need to include a greenhouse gas emissions statement in their Directors’ report for the first financial year ending after 30th September 2013.

Ian Hughes, commercial director at Zenith, said: “The GHG reporting tool has been developed in-house, forming part of our ongoing Pulse development and providing added value tools for our customers.

“Although the new regulations apply to several of our customers, this new reporting tool will help all our customers to have more transparency on fleet emissions and assist in making decisions and policy changes to reduce environmental impact.”
