Zenith Develops Fleet GHG Reporting Tool
The GHG tool helps provide a greater understanding of individual fleetsâ€™ environmental impact, the fleet management firm says. 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 traveled and vehicle type. Reports can be exported to use as part of a directorsâ€™ 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 directorsâ€™ report. It requires reporting on greenhouse gases including methane and nitrous oxides, not just CO2 emissions.
Affected companies will need to include a GHG emissions statement in their directorsâ€™ report for the first financial year ending after Sept. 30.
Zenith commercial director Ian Hughes says the GHG reporting tool will benefit all the companyâ€™s customers â€” even those that donâ€™t have to comply with the UK regulations â€” by giving them more transparency on fleet emissions and assisting in making decisions and policy changes to reduce environmental impact.
Last month, the World Resources Institute launched an updated version of its online GHG emissions tool that WRI says can help businesses better understand and benchmark their county-level emissions.
The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool, or CAIT 2.0, is a free portal that provides data on GHG emissions from 185 countries and all 50 US states, plus other climate data. CAIT 2.0 allows users to view, sort, visualize and download data sets for comparative analysis.
