Our Sustainability Statement
Moving towards a Sustainable Future with OptiFleet
Sustainability is at the core of our business. New Zealand has one of the oldest and most inefficient car fleets in the developed world with a large portion of CO2 emissions coming from transport.
New Zealand is committed to significantly reducing carbon emissions from vehicles, aiming to convert 1/3 of the Government fleet into 'EV's' by 2020. OptiFleet can now help you understand where EV's can best fit into your fleet. By analysing GPS data to determine peak demand, concurrent use, average use and time and use, we can predict which of your vehicles are over or under-utilised and where it would be optimal to use EV's. Using total cost of ownership modelling, we can then help you choose the best vehicle for your organisation.

Helping our Clients Go Green
As one of OptiFleet's Seven Pillars of Fleet Management Excellence, we regard sustainability as being integral to best practice fleet management and procurement. Whilst we assist clients to optimise their fleets, we will help to establish sound environmental reporting and provide expert advice for those who wish to develop greener fleet management practices and improve their sustainability credentials. We are acutely aware of the need for financial success to retain viability in a competitive marketplace - this means that greening our clients' fleets, must also make good economic sense. In our experience greener fleets almost always result in bottom line savings for our clients. Fuel costs are a major energy expense for many businesses and these costs will only increase with time as fuel supplies reduce and carbon taxes are implemented. As a consequence of sourcing efficient vehicles, implementing sustainable fleet management practices and educating drivers on fuel-efficient driving, fuel-cost risks can be significantly reduced, while positively contributing to fleet safety and brand image.
