Hankinson Group Achieves Silver Fleet Status Back

Date published: July 12, 2019

Hankinson Group has been certified Silver by Masternaut for operating a more efficient fleet compared with competitors.

 

Climate change is a threat to our planet and transportation is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. As European and UK regulations are reinforced to lower carbon emissions, companies have a key role to play to become compliant, demonstrate exemplary behaviour and shine a spotlight on this issue.

As part of Masternaut's CO2 Certification programme, 230,000 tonnes of CO2 are saved each year by Masternaut customers. This is equivalent to 87,800,000 litres of fuel and a saving of approximately £113,262,000. Using telematics to measure our impact, and implement more environmentally considerate driving styles, we’re proud to have contributed to these impressive savings.

“Climate change is a problem that affects us all. At Hankinson Group we’re conscious of our environmental impact and constantly focus on being a greener operator.  Emissions from transport is our most significant environmental impact as a Group, travelling Nationwide to our client’s premises to deliver a first class service. Masternaut’s Certification serves as a recognition of all the hard work we have been doing to improve the efficiency of our fleet and to lower carbon emissions.” – Amy Pohribnyj – Group SHEQ Co-ordinator.

Hankinson Group has completed a number of actions to improve our fleet efficiencies including:

  • Purchase of newer, more efficient vehicles;
  • Investment in state of the art Masternaut Connect telematics and CAN Clip technology;
  • Introduction of driver training through Masternaut’s In-Cab Coaching device;
  • Fleet policy review in line with the Driving for Better Business standards, leading to the launch of our Driving for Work Safety Programme.

Masternaut’s Fleet CO2 Certification has been independently verified by the Energy Saving Trust, a UK-based organisation with a mission to help people save energy every day:

The Energy Saving Trust has conducted a limited assurance verification of Masternaut’s Fleet CO2 Certification methodology and can give assurance on its accuracy as a measurement of CO2 improvement.
