White paper: Fuel Efficiency and carbon reduction

Insight
It almost goes without saying that one of the biggest costs of running a company fleet is the bill for petrol, diesel and to a lesser extent, bio-fuels and LPG.
Couple this expenditure with your organisation striving to meet its carbon footprint targets and the choice of vehicles in the fleet seemingly becomes one of a business-critical nature. This is something not lost on vehicle manufacturers who operate in a hugely competitive market and have become focused on CO2 emission values and MPG (or litres/km) figures because of the influence they have with fleet decision makers.
But is vehicle design solely responsible for returning the CO2 and MPG figures quoted by
the manufacturers?
