Carbon Offset Solutions for Fleet Fuel Card Holders
Put Your Best Foot Forward—Minus the Carbon Footprint
Whether your fleet consists of one vehicle or one hundred, your business can benefit from offsetting your carbon emissions. Working toward net zero carbon emissions positions your business for future growth, as society and the economy are shifting in favor of businesses that are environmentally conscious.
Take the lead in making decisions that help create a cleaner, safer future for us all.
How It Works
Carbon Offset Solutions for Fleet Fuel Card Customers
Guttman Renewables helps your fleet achieve carbon neutrality without changing the way you fuel. Here’s how it works:
1. Guttman Renewables tracks your fuel purchases.
2. We then calculate the emissions associated with those fuel purchases.
3. Lastly, we purchase and retire the appropriate number of carbon offsets on your Company’s behalf.
Offsetting your emissions is easier and more affordable than you think. Get started by exploring your fleet’s emissions and how many offsets you’d require with our easy Carbon Offsets Calculator.
Guttman Renewables Carbon Offset FAQs
Guttman Renewables derives your corresponding carbon emissions using the type and quantity of fuel you purchase. This allows us to accurately calculate the emissions your vehicles produce regardless of vehicle type. Whether you drive highly-efficient vehicles or more conventional ones, we can accurately calculate the emissions and corresponding offsets required to neutralize those emissions.
The offsets used in the Fleet Card Carbon Offsets Program are from the Guttman Renewables portfolio, which includes projects ranging from renewable energy and intermodal transportation to industrial gas capture and enhanced oil recovery. All projects are listed on reputable registries that maintain standards to certify projects and ensure their environmental impact. Projects are publicly registered, and offsets are serialized and retired to avoid double counting.
No, the percentage of emissions you offset is up to you. However, we strive to provide affordable per-gallon pricing that puts carbon neutrality in reach for most customers.
Yes, you will be billed separately for offset purchases and can opt out of the program separately from your Fleet Card membership at any time. Simply call your Customer Service Representative to discuss options and further program details.
This list features only a few of our selected Carbon Offset Projects. If you do not see an option that works for your business or wish to learn if Guttman can modify your selected project to fit your company’s needs, please contact us at 724.489.5199.
DESTRUCTION OF OZONE DEPLETING SUBSTANCES
This greenhouse gas project environmentally and safely destroys ozone-depleting substances extracted from refrigeration, freezer, and air-conditioning end-of-life appliances. The goal of the project is to safely and environmentally destroy ODS extracted from end-of-life appliances.
QUANTIFICATION OF CO2 EMISSION REDUCTIONS FROM SLAG-BASED RECYCLING OPERATIONS
The project quantifies the greenhouse gas emissions reduced from Les Minéraux Harsco’s activities in the Province of Quebec, Canada. Post-consumer slag-based products are recycled by transforming materials recovered from different industries into sand, alumina, steel, and iron oxide. Those products are sold and integrated into new products.
J.B. HUNT INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION
J.B. Hunt pursued carbon efficiency in transportation by increasing the amount of freight transported by intermodal instead of long-haul trucking. Rail transportation was found to generate only one third of the emissions generated by truck transportation. Hunt also implemented an Idling Bonus Program to monetarily reward drivers and their managers for reducing unnecessary engine idling.
BII NEE STIPA (WIND)
This project generates renewable energy from wind resources to market to Mexican partners willing to consume this form of energy. The project will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by avoiding electricity generation otherwise produced at fossil-fuel fired power plants, and thereby the CO2 emissions associated with it.
Cardinal Midale CO2 EOR Battery
The project aims to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere and utilizing it in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) schemes can result in permanent net geological sequestration of CO2. EOR schemes are typically operated with externally sourced CO2 from industrial processes or power generation unrelated to the EOR scheme’s operation. This quantification protocol establishes the methodology for quantifying the eligible greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions through net geological sequestration of CO2 for EOR project activities.
