Telematics company Azuga has launched a new fleet sustainability service through a partnership with GreenPrint, a corporate sustainability solutions provider.
Through the service, Azuga customers can certify their fleet vehicles are carbon neutral. The entire process receives independent, third-party attestation, and customers will receive impact reports and carbon offset certificates indicating the environmental benefit from their participation, the announcement said.
The company says the sustainability service will help businesses reduce their carbon impact and demonstrate corporate responsibility.
“We are excited to partner with Azuga and enable them to offer a suite of sustainability metrics to complement the rich data and insights they currently provide to their customers,” said Pete Davis, CEO of GreenPrint. “The Azuga Fleet Sustainability program allows Azuga customers to take immediate action on climate change.”
Azuga customers can choose to add the fleet sustainability option for an additional monthly fee ranging from $5 to $7/vehicle, although certain heavy duty trucks require customized pricing. No new hardware is required.
GreenPrint receives data from Azuga to calculate total emissions and then invests in carbon offsets to make the vehicles certified carbon neutral.
The Azuga service is open to any Azuga customer and fleets of all sizes. Azuga intends to initially promote the program to enterprise accounts and larger SMB customers that may have greater pressures around ESG performance from investors and corporate customers.
“The cost of ignoring this issue from a supplier and consumer perspective is growing by the day,” said Ananth Rani, CEO at Azuga. “Our service is more cost-effective than anything a company could do on its own and provides them a significant competitive advantage. We’re excited to help our customers meet their sustainability goals.”
GreenPrint has already neutralized over 10 million metric tons of carbon from more than 1 million vehicles across 16 countries.
