Resource optimisation for our field service
Providing personal support to our customers by igefa specialist consultants makes the use of cars unavoidable.
This entails the consumption of resources and environmental pollution, which we counteract through a range of different measures.
Environmental protection measures:
- route optimisation in order to save kilometres and spend more time with our customers
- new customer care models in which the field and in-house services share support activities, with a personal visit and telephone advice being offered in alternation - depending on the individual customer requirement
- video conference systems instead of travel
- CO2 guideline for the new procurement of exclusively fuel-saving car models
During the last five years, we have successfully reduced the consumption of fuel by cars by 10 percent. In relation to our turnover growth, this figure increases to 25 percent!
At igefa, we currently use mainly diesel engines, due to state subsidies for diesel engines, which make it considerably more cost-efficient to maintain diesel vehicles compared to petrol-driven vehicles.
With the orientation of our fleet of cars and the development of our CO2 fleet average in mind, we are following the political discussion and development surrounding the car industry, particularly with regard to hybrid or pure electric-driven cars.
Our goal is to reduce the car fleet average by four grammes of carbon dioxide per kilometre annually.
Due to the unreliable data on CO2 values provided by the car industry, we can only work with theoretical figures, however.
