After working closely with major clients, Eagles Chauffeurs have managed to reduce their drivers’ “dead mileage” by 15% over the last two years, simply because their vehicles rarely have to travel more than one mile to arrive at their next pick-up point. The emissions are lower than those of their competitors, who, owing to their smaller fleet sizes, often need to travel several miles between jobs. This has led to a reduction of greenhouse emissions by 15%, which equates to approximately 4000 tonnes in one year.
The company is not stopping there as they are working rapidly to make further cuts in vehicle emissions. There’s currently a three-way plotting system for all their drivers, meaning it will reduce distance to pick-up point by an average of 50%, saving 150 miles per day. With the increase in workflow, Eagles Chauffeurs are now working on the introduction of a four-way plotting system.
Two of the main vehicles used by the company include the Mercedes S-Class and the Mercedes E-Class, both of which are considerably greener than any other vehicles in their class. The S-Class was the world’s first car awarded an environmental certificate in recognition of its ISO standard, while the E-Class lowers CO2 emissions to just 109 G/KM.
Eagles Chauffeurs (eagleschauffeurs.com )aims to reduce its CO2 emissions by 60% by 2025.
