The internationally active LOSTnFOUND AG has developed an innovative supplement to its telematics solution with the support of myclimate. The fleet.tech dashboard not only provides a fleet manager with an overview of the efficiency and safety behaviour of his vehicle fleet, but now also shows the CO₂ output in tons for each vehicle. The methodology for calculating the life cycle assessment of a registered vehicle is based on a life cycle approach. This means that the calculation of a vehicle's CO₂ footprint takes into account the processes and their environmental impact on a pro rata basis from the manufacture to the disposal of a vehicle.
The fleet.tech system records all journeys using GPS and other consumption data and automatically calculates the emissions and the necessary CO₂ compensation amount in francs or euros. The customer can then voluntarily offset the amount of CO₂ per vehicle that is generated within 6, 12 or 24 months with a monetary amount - with just one click of the mouse. The system automatically produces an invoice and an individual myclimate offsetting certificate. In addition, vehicles are marked with a sticker so that third parties can see that a vehicle is carbon neutral through offsetting.
In 2018, VerkehrsRundschau presented the "VR Awards" for the first time on the occasion of the VR Gala in the categories of education, digitalisation and environmental protection, as well as a public prize to transport and logistics companies that have shown special achievements or implemented a particularly innovative idea in the mentioned categories.
