We Do CO2 Reduction

Posted by

As well as doing our bit to keep our customers’ warm in their homes, we’re also working hard to reduce our impact on the planet.

So we’re proud to have been awarded Bronze Fleet certification by our vehicle tracking provider, Masternaut, for reducing our fleet emissions.

Blue Flame’s Operations Manager, Matt Dennison, said: “With a fleet of 60 vehicles and 12,000 customers across Cornwall from Land’s End to Bude, we are always looking at ways in which we can reduce the impact our operations have on the planet.

“We’ve invested in new, more energy efficient vans. Our new Ford Transit Customs have EcoBlue 2.0 litre diesel engines that deliver improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Together this has helped us achieve this certification.

“Additionally the introduction of a new job operational software programme in quarter three of this year will further assist our hardworking back office and admin teams to plan jobs and journeys for our engineers and surveyors tat are efficient as possible.”

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

Here’s some more information on the scheme. You can also find out more here: https://www.masternaut.com/co2

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. The method of CO2 emissions calculation used by Masternaut is based on primary fuel data captured which generates the highest precision level for CO2 emissions calculations. When these values are combined with vehicle distances then the resultant outputs can be used to assess vehicle efficiency on an ongoing basis.

The Energy Saving Trust has also assessed that Masternaut’s Fleet CO2 Certification Programme will provide outputs that will allow operators to attain specific measured values, transport operator specific values or transport operator fleet specific values for transport services in accordance with EN 16258:2012 Methodology for the calculation and declaration of energy consumption and GHG emissions of transport services (freight and passengers).
