Van users warned: emissions reporting is coming

Any business running vans needs to start working on its emissions strategies now, if it has not done so already, according to Steve Clarke, general manager of The Fuelcard People. “Transport emissions may have been left out of the Carbon Reduction Commitment,” he said, “but DEFRA will be requiring publication of emission figures from next year.”

The secretary of state for the environment, Caroline Spelman, made it clear that transport emissions will be included in the scheme, which forces firms to publish the figures in their annual reports. The government announcement will affect only 1,000 major listed businesses initially, but the stated intention is to consider extension of the requirement. “We will collect evidence from the first two years,” said Ms. Spelman, “and take a further decision from 2016 on whether the reporting requirement should be extended.”

Steve Clarke said, “Given the cross-party commitment to emissions reductions, nobody will expect this requirement not to be extended. We anticipate mandatory reporting for all companies within a decade.”

His authority derives in part from The Fuelcard People still being the road transport sector’s only official partner of Cool Earth. “We developed the pioneering CO2Count service knowing that such legislation was inevitable,” he said, “but our commitment goes beyond that. In delivering emissions monitoring, we simultaneously make an impact in threatened rainforests.”

The Fuelcard People makes a donation to Cool Earth, Europe’s fastest-growing environmental charity, for every CO2Count Certificate issued. These are available to its fuel card customers, alongside regular invoices, for a nominal sum and give full details of CO2, CH4 and N2O emissions fleetwide.

The Fuelcard People deals with the refuelling concerns of businesses running vans and other light commercial vehicles every day. It helps them to find the best refuelling deals through a range which includes commercial rate fuel cards valid at BP, Co-Op, Emo, Esso, Gulf, Shell, Texaco, Q8, Jet, Gulf, Spot, Murco, Morrisons, Pace, Tesco and Moto filling stations, as well as on the Diesel Direct (Keyfuels), MyFuel and UK Fuels networks.
