EROAD’s suite of data-driven sustainability, emissions and decarbonisation tools assists in:

  • Monitoring emissions over your fleet.
  • Pinpointing where you can make savings in fuel use.
  • Understand the impact harsh braking and acceleration has on fuel economy.
  • Identify vehicle candidates with poor emissions profiles for replacement with vehicles sporting superior profiles.
  • Outline driver coaching opportunities through harsh events, unproductive idling and route selection.

General abbreviations and context

CO2-e: Shorthand for ‘Carbon Dioxide and related vehicle exhaust greenhouse gas emissions’. Carbon Dioxide isn’t the only greenhouse gas emitted, and concentrations vary, depending on the fossil fuel used.

Generally, 1 kg of liquid fossil fuel turns into just-over twice that mass of gaseous emissions during combustion. So fuel burn isn’t just releasing CO2-e: it’s also taking away breathable oxygen from the atmosphere.

Threshold: Many graphs overlay a target threshold for companies to compare against a norm. In our graphs, being above/outside threshold is bad; under/within threshold is good.

Exporting data: Several pages feature an Export button, specifically for outputting the page to a PDF file.

Charts that allow you to export to CSV are found by hovering over the chart to see if the PowerBI tools appear top-right of the chart (see below), the menu should first feature the Export Data option. A window will open, asking for your layout and file format choices.
