ISS secures gold status for fleet efficiency

masternaut-464 L-R: Declan Clarke, Managing Director, ISS Technical Services and, David Butler, Asset Planning and Engineering Support Manager for ISS Technical Services, ISS UK’s technical and mobile engineering division
ISS UK has secured a top award from the Masternaut Fleet CO2 Certification Programme in the reduction of CO2 emissions and driving forward its green credentials in fleet management
The facilities management services business has been awarded a gold rating from the Masternaut scheme which enables fleet operators to understand and reduce their emissions. 

ISS has reduced its annual CO2 emissions by 199,589kg. This equates to an improvement of 5.76%, compared to the previous year’s progress.  Improvements also resulted in a better use of fuel which sees fleet fuel efficiency improved from 39.8 to 41.5 miles per gallon – a 4.25% increase on 2017.

Verified by the Energy Saving Trust, the certification scheme is awarded annually at three levels – gold, silver and bronze. To achieve gold, operators must achieve either a 5% improvement on industry benchmarks (based on similar fleets) or demonstrate a 5% reduction in emissions, compared to their own year-on-year figures. 

Tim Proctor, Director of Health, Safety, Environment, Quality & Corporate Responsibility for ISS UK, said: “At ISS, 79% of our carbon footprint originates from diesel and petrol use in our vehicle fleet of 843 company cars and 1,578 vans. “As outlined in our corporate responsibility strategy, ThinkForward@ISS, we’re fully focused on reducing our energy use and adopting innovative approaches to prepare our business and our customers for a future low-carbon economy. “Masternaut’s latest certification is recognition of all the hard work we have been doing to improve our fleet efficiency and demonstrates that we are making a difference to climate change – one of greatest challenges we face.”

Declan Clarke, Managing Director, ISS Technical Services, said: “We’re extremely proud to have been awarded the gold standard for carbon certification and to be recognised as a best-in-class emissions operator for the second year running. “This is testament to our engineering teams, which account for a high proportion of ISS UK’s commercial fleet. In partnership with Masternaut, we’re able to successfully evaluate and more effectively manage our fleet performance – with a target to reduce all vehicle carbon emissions by 20% by 2022.”


Energy Saving Trust Verification:
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.
