Fleet managers can invest in carbon offsets, certifying their vehicles as carbon neutral.
Atlanta (October 21, 2021) GreenPrint announced today they have partnered with Azuga, a fleet telematics company, to launch a fleet sustainability service. Azuga customers can now certify their fleet vehicles are carbon neutral. The entire process receives independent, third-party attestation and customers receive impact reports and carbon offset certificates indicating the environmental benefit from their participation.
Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., and one of the most difficult sectors to decarbonize. Azuga’s fleet sustainability service, powered by GreenPrint, makes it easy and cost-effective for businesses to reduce their carbon impact and demonstrate corporate responsibility. The service also helps companies improve existing sustainability initiatives and reach carbon neutrality and net-zero goals.
Azuga’s Fleet Sustainability program provides a framework for Azuga customers to implement a sustainability strategy that is both actionable and achievable. The program enables companies to determine a baseline of their fleet’s current environmental impact, help identify improvement opportunities, present tools to reach sustainability goals, and outline best practices for how to appropriately communicate progress to customers, employees, and partners.
“We are excited to partner with Azuga and enable them to offer a suite of sustainability metrics to complement the rich data and insights they currently provide to their customers,” says Pete Davis, CEO of GreenPrint. “The Azuga Fleet Sustainability Program allows Azuga customers to take immediate action on climate change.”
Azuga customers can choose to add the fleet sustainability option for an additional monthly fee ranging from $5-$7/vehicle (certain heavy duty trucks require customized pricing). There is nothing additional a customer needs to do and no new hardware to install. GreenPrint then receives data from Azuga to calculate total emissions and then invests in carbon offsets to make the vehicles certified carbon neutral.
The Azuga service is open to any Azuga customer and fleets of all sizes. Azuga intends to initially promote the program to enterprise accounts and larger SMB customers that may have greater pressures around ESG performance from investors and corporate customers.
“The cost of ignoring this issue from a supplier and consumer perspective is growing by the day,” said Ananth Rani, CEO at Azuga. “Our service is more cost-effective than anything a company could do on its own and provides them a significant competitive advantage. We’re excited to help our customers meet their sustainability goals.”
Azuga was founded with the vision to continuously improve safety and productivity within the fleet ecosystem. Azuga, a Bridgestone company, is a leading global connected vehicle platform, helping customers turn data from vehicles and drivers into intelligence that improves operations and safety while reducing cost and risk. Azuga provides innovative end-to-end solutions for commercial fleets, government agencies, insurance companies, and automotive industry suppliers, through an integrated approach of hardware technology, fleet management applications, driver gamification, video telematics, and data analytics.
