Reducing vehicle emissions is good for the environment and good for your budget. Reducing vehicle emissions can be achieved in a variety of ways. Vehicle emissions reduction strategies can be broadly categorised as:
- Acquiring a low emission vehicle, or modifying your existing vehicle;
- Efficiently maintaining and operating the vehicle and, if applicable, the fleet of vehicles;
- Using a lower emission fuel; and
- Driving efficiently (ecodriving).
To support your efforts to lower emissions, it is worthwhile monitoring your vehicle's or fleet's fuel economy and emissions performance. Consider, also, offsetting remaining emissions.
Understanding where the energy in vehicles goes can be a great help in targeting efficiency improvements and emission reduction opportunities.
