3 Carbon Footprint Staff vehicles 1,450 tonnes Council vehicles 2,000 tonnes Total 3,450 tonnes

4 Who does what? Procurement – buys vehicles for departments Fleet services – manage, maintain, fuel vehicles Transport services – run vehicles for some departments Environmental services – promotes environmental performance HR and finance – mileage allowances All departments – users of vehicles

5 Lots of people involved Lots of enthusiasm But some fragmentation

6 Vehicles and fuels Department specifies Fleet services manage purchase/lease No formal fleet policy or replacement strategy Lots of vehicles tried – LPG, electric, etc Bunker LPG and 5% biodiesel

7 Actions 1.Centralised fleet policy providing criteria for vehicle choice, supported by procurement framework 2.More co-ordination from fleet services for vehicle purchase and replacement 3.Maintain capability for LPG fleet, and explore use of 30% biodiesel

8 Fleet policy Life-cycle costing Fit for purpose – smallest appropriate Set CO 2 limits by vehicle type Get highest Euro standard possible EuroV or EEV Use alternatives where appropriate

9 Fuels Hierarchy? Electric or hybrid Biofuels – biodiesel, bioethanol, biogas Gas fuels – LPG or CNG Best technology petrol and diesel

10 Fuel Management Central bunkered fuel with DataTrack fuel management system Fuel data not integrated into fleet management system High use of petrol in LPG vehicles No active monitoring or management of fuel and vehicle MPG

11 Actions 1.Integrate fuel data into RoadBase 2.Take a proactive role on fuel management with local fuel champions 3.Develop centralised driver training capability to SAFED standards 4.Provide fuel efficient driving tips in drivers handbook

12 Effective fuel management Ensure robust data – currently mileage data is weak Set performance base line and improvement targets Monitor MPG and mileage against targets – feed back to fuel champions Take corrective and improvement measures

13 Managing mileage Fleet mileage –is not accurately monitored –estimated at some 2 million miles Staff mileage –data from mileage cliams, –monitored by environmental performance team –4.3 million miles

14 Staff annual mileage claims

15 Moving the transport user mileage 3,0008,000 Causal user Essential user? Lease / fleet vehicle The car user Non-car modes walk/cycle – short urban trips bus – short urban trips train – intercity, regional air – long distance Pool/ hire car trips over 80 miles reduce car commute Car sharing passenger rate Less controlMore control

19 Policy issues Departmental mileage targets in corporate performance system Update travel policy to: –Reflect business travel plans –80 mile private car limit –Assisted vehicle purchase criteria Drivers handbook to include information on fuel efficient driving

20 Conclusions Enthusiasm, good activities, but fragmentation More central coordination from fleet services Better coordination of travel activities

21 Key recommendations - 1 A centralised vehicle procurement framework, which is already being developed; A centralised fleet policy setting out the criteria for vehicles which can be used across the Council; A more proactive and centralise approach to vehicle replacement and purchases managed by fleet services; A more proactive approach to fuel management lead by fleet services or local fleet champions;
