Efficiency-enhancing technologies in the road fleet¹
Along with technical modifications made to conventional fuel vehicles, we have also increased our efforts to deploy alternative drive technologies and alternative fuels as a way to further reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. This includes mainly electric and natural gas powered vehicles for short distances, as well as sustainably produced, advanced generation biofuels for long-haul transport. Out of about 92,000 of our own road vehicles deployed worldwide, we have already enhanced approximately 20,500 vehicles with over 25,600 technical modifications – with several different modifications often made to a single vehicle.
A detailed overview of individual efficiency measures as well as a multi-year overview can be found in the Annex of this report.
