Webfleet Solutions and Justdiggit is launching Green Your Fleet, a new platform to help fleets make a positive climate impact.
The initiative builds on a long-term partnership between Webfleet and Justdiggit, the non-governmental organisation, focused on landscape restoration projects in Africa.
Webfleet Solutions aims to offset the carbon emissions from its own supply chain and facilities, as part of its Green Mission to help build a more sustainable future by lowering the company’s own carbon footprint and helping customers lower carbon emissions.
The platform allows customers to calculate an estimate of their annual CO2 emissions based on their fleet size and vehicle types, via Webfleet’s CO2 calculator.
The calculator is built with data from Webfleet Solutions fleet management software Webfleet, considering the average fuel consumption and mileage values.
The tool generates the amount required to offset the fleet’s carbon emissions. This is based on Justdiggits’ calculations of the indicative average costs of reducing one tonne of CO2 by regreening dry lands in Tanzania.
Wessel Koning, business development and partnerships director at Justdiggit, said: “This platform is a unique customer facing proposition that inspires and involves companies to join us in the regreen revolution that is needed to cool down our planet.
“With this new simple tool, companies can – in one minute – see what is needed to offset their carbon emissions and empower nature and people in Tanzania.”
The Green Your Fleet platform also shows how many square metres will be regreened, how many trees will be brought back, how much water will be saved and how many local people are empowered – all by the same contribution.
In July, Webfleet Solutions enhanced its offering with new electric vehicle (EV) management tools that provide fleet managers remote insights into their electric and hybrid vehicles.
Thomas Schmidt, managing director of Bridgestone Mobility Solutions and CEO of Webfleet Solutions, said: “Sustainability is a top priority for a lot of our customers as well as for our own business.
“Our fleet management solution Webfleet already helps customers to reduce their fuel consumption and carbon emissions by up to 25%. The Green Your Fleet platform provides the opportunity to go even further and become part of our regreening programme with our trusted partner Justdiggit.”
Through Justdiggit, Webfleet Solutions says to date, it has invested in re-greening an area in Tanzania four times larger than the centre of Amsterdam which results in 51,800 tonnes of CO2 sequestrated through bringing back over 130,000 trees.
