Webfleet Solutions offsets its carbon emissions


Webfleet Solutions has supported an initiative to compensate the carbon emissions from its supply chain and facilities during 2019.

The project is being run in partnership with Justdiggit, a Dutch NGO focused on landscape restoration and positive climate impact.  

Through Justdiggit, Webfleet Solutions invested in re-greening an area in Kenya larger than the centre of Amsterdam.

Webfleet Solutions also encouraged its customers to switch to e-invoices, with 19,000 users now choosing that option. For every paper invoice that is still sent, Webfleet Solutions makes a further donation to Justdiggit.

“This partnership is a step forward in helping to reverse climate change,” said Wessel Koning, business development and partnership director at Justdiggit.

“We all need to join forces and it’s great to see Webfleet Solutions’ commitment to creating a positive impact.”

Thomas Schmidt, CEO and managing director of Webfleet Solutions, said: “Our core fleet management solution, Webfleet already supports customers to reduce their fuel consumption and carbon emissions by between 10% and 25%, but we want to do more.

“As a part of the Bridgestone Group, we share its global commitment to help achieve a more sustainable society. This initiative is an important element of us putting our part of that commitment into action.”
