Sustainability Projects

Through specialization that provides a full solution to the customer, Ecofrotas is committed not only to reduce the total fleet cost, but also to reduce the environmental impact caused by vehicles, both by the emissions released and also through the discharge of residues, such as oil, tires and plastic components.

  • Control System for Using Renewable Fuels

    This is a Multifuel process that ensures that users follow the Economic and Ecological Policy defined by their fleet manager. The system prevents the drivers from using fossil fuels when renewable fuels are available.

  • Fleet Intelligence Reports – CO2 Emission

    Reports which measure CO2 emission and the fleet's general eco-efficiency by region, cost center, vehicle, and driver.The reports also use the level of CO2 emissions per kilometer travelled as a benchmark which shows the customer where to focus their effort to reduce the costs and environmental impact of their vehicle fleet.

  • Behavioral Influence - Aware Drivers

    The participation of drivers is also important to the process of reducing costs and the environmental impact. With this in mind, Ecofrotas offers educational material that helps drivers develop a new attitude which encourgages them do drive in a safer, more economic, and more sustainable fashion.

  • Parts Reverse Logistics System

    This is the best way to responsibly dispose of components which are replaced during fleet maintenance. Through this system you can automatically generate a request to collect parts and oil to a company that is certified in Environmental Reverse Logistics.

  • Network Certification for Gas Stations and Garages

    The gas stations and garages of the Ecofrotas certified network have undergone a rigorous environmental accreditation process. The recycling of water, selective waste collection, and appropriate oil disposal are some of the procedures that are monitored as part of this vetting process.

EPC – Businesses for the Climate

In 2011, Ecofrotas joined the EPC (Businesses for the Climate) platform. The initiative, which includes the participation of 40 companies from various sectors, is lead by the Center for Sustainability Studies of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation, and exists to build a new economic model for the Country based on climate balance. The EPC acts through training activities for business managers and through support for companies in the development of their corporate policies and strategy for the management of Greenhouse Gases (GHG).

The company joined this platform since it has become increasingly more involved with this economic movement, and has invested heavily in research and development for products and services with lower emissions.

The program seeks to hold thematic roundtable discussions to deal with the sectors that pollute the most, such as: agribusiness, energy, manufacturing, services, and transportation.

Also, the companies that are part of Businesses for the Climate are committed to publish their GHG inventories according to the methodology of the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program. The Protocol is a trustworthy tool, used by companies and governments throughout the world to measure gases that can cause global warming. To be an EPC member means developing technological solutions to measure and reduce the sources of the greenhouse effect.
