GHG Phase 2

What's Ahead for Wide-Base Single Tires?

Could the next round of greenhouse gas reduction rules push more fleets over to wide-base single tires? It seems likely, given not only their relatively low rolling resistance but weight savings as well.

What Phase 2 GHG Regs Mean to Fleets

To meet Phase 2 GHG regulations, fleets will have to pay for advances to get required fuel-economy gains and keep everything working.

Impact of Regulatory Issues on Medium-Duty Truck Fleets

With the start of the New Year already behind us, truck fleets are facing the possibility of even more regulations. The new rules are designed to make truck fleet operations more efficient and safer.

Debunking the Defeatist Mindset Toward Fleet Sustainability

Many fleet managers know they should be doing something to “green” their fleet, but they do nothing, rationalizing (and justifying) their inaction due to budget constraints or lack of management support. To me, this is a self-fulfilling mindset that guarantees your fleet will remain in a status quo situation. Fleet managers need to break free from this defeatist mindset and here's how to do it.

No Silver Bullet to Fleet Emission Reductions

Vehicle fleets are key contributors to a company’s overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but they do offer a way to make quick emissions reductions. Since most companies replace approximately one-third of their fleet vehicles each year, they can structure selectors to favor more fuel-efficient models; however, there is a limit to this strategy. The reality is that there is no single silver bullet to fleet emissions reduction — it requires a multi-pronged approach.

The Melding of Driver Safety and Fleet Sustainability Initiatives

There are many similarities between eco-driving techniques and safe-driving techniques. In fact, there’s a direct correlation between safe driving and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It’s been proven: the safer the driver, the lower the GHG emissions.
