Carbon Neutral Zone
A study commissioned by the American Automotive Leasing Association - the Telson/Bruce Study arrived at the following conclusions.
- Managed fleets result in more efficient fuel use and thus reduce carbon emissions - why ? The managed fleet business model is structured around economic efficiency.
- Quantitatively, managed fleets are approximately 10% more efficient than driver reimbursement programs.
- In 2007 managed fleets saved over 400 million gallons of fuel. Given the fact that the U.S. consumes over 400 million gallons of fuel a day, these savings represent a significant step forward in reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
- The elimination of over 4 million tons of carbon emissions, thru the reduction of use of over 400 million gallons of gas. Simply stated, managed fleets deliver smaller carbon footprints.
At NitroFleet99 we are educating policy makers on the benefits of Nitrogen Tire Inflation for the fleet community. Both over the road and passenger fleets thru our active association with the National Association of Fleet Administrators - NAFA With our expertise in Nitrogen Services, we have developed a Carbon Credit Program for managed fleets. We recognize the mechanisms, challenges and restrictions under the Kyoto Protocol . We can provide Carbon Programs for select clients that reflect the Clean Development Mechanism used in the Kyoto accord to PROVE "additionality" - this being a term to describe the fact that a carbon dioxide reduction project [ I.E. carbon project] would not have occurred had it not been for concern for the mitigation of climate change. More simply stated - a project that has proven "additionality" is a beyond business as usual project. Thru effective fleet management and the use of Nitrogen Tire Inflation NitroFleet99 is again the industry leader in providing sustainable business solutions that benefit both the environment and your company's bottom line.
Policymakers at the federal and state levels continue to look for ways to reduce vehicle fuel usage. With some legislators viewing fleets as tempting targets for regulation the urgency to make policy changes and recognize the savings that are available to managed fleets. Nitrogen Tire inflation has bee widely used for decades, science has recognized the effects of Nitrogen versus compressed air on tire aging, with compelling results. Managed fleets are part of the solution, NOT the problem in reducing fuel usage and carbon emissions on a very large scale. Please Contact us today to discuss your fleet and how we can develop a Carbon Program that will advance your economic and environmental interests.
