Running your car fleet more efficiently

Introduction

Running a fleet of cars can be complex and costly. But doing it more efficiently can substantially reduce your operating costs - company car tax is based on CO2 emissions so using lower-emission cars will save you money. It can also improve your business' environmental performance and increase its corporate social responsibility.

Whether your fleet consists of company cars, allowance cars, hire cars, grey fleet or a mixture of these, running it efficiently is not just about monitoring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions - it is also about improving your working practices. For example, promoting car sharing and video-conferencing can reduce the use of cars in your business.

This guide will show you how running your fleet more efficiently can benefit your business and the environment, and how you can make sure that vehicles used by your business are safe, clean, well-driven, fit for purpose, reliable and affordable.
