Land transportation

Efforts to decarbonise road transport often focus solely on technology and alternative fuels.

But as the industry has continuously pointed out, a significant uptake of alternatively fuelled vehicles requires a recharging and refuelling infrastructure that is not yet in place.

The road transport sector is committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

To do so, the industry needs to pursue several avenues which are already available but not sufficiently leveraged.

One solution that can immediately reduce carbon emissions, whether it be buses, coaches, taxis or trucks, is a widespread and continuous adoption of eco-driving.

Eco-driving is synonymous with fuel efficiency. By driving more efficiently, drivers can reduce their fuel consumption – and thus CO2 emissions – by up to 15%.

IRU RoadMasters, a risk and talent management solution, now also has an eco-driving efficiency programme with dynamic digital dashboards to manage team, business and driver performance.
