Reducing Fleet Emissions

Reducing Fleet Emissions

Learn how to decrease your fleet fuel consumption


During this 8 week part time face-to-face course you will learn strategies for reducing your fleet fuel consumption.
The aim is to help you get ahead of industry sector and government benchmarks and save your business substantial costs.
The course is specifically designed to show you the range of opportunities available to reduce fleet emissions including a specific focus on driving options, the differing characteristics of vehicles and the effect that vehicle emissions have both on the environment and human health.


These types of courses have been shown to have an impact on driver behaviour, with follow-up surveys showing that 89 per cent of drivers continue to follow the fuel efficiency practices they were taught one-and-a-half years later. Improvements in fuel efficiency can range from 0.5 per cent to 30 per cent, with an average improvement of 8.6 per cent.
