Evaluate Greenhouse Gas Emissions Profile for Vehicles and Mobile Equipment
To gain a good understanding of a Federal agency's Scope 1 vehicle and mobile equipment greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the agency must first collect the necessary data to profile any emissions sources then analyze the data in a way that will clarify the most viable strategies and alternatives. Emissions cannot be managed until they are measured.
Through the use of fleet/vehicle management information systems, as well as reporting to the Federal Energy Management Program and General Services Administration, agencies are increasingly collecting and documenting useful data elements at the headquarters-and sometimes at specific site -levels.
While rolled-up, agency-level data are useful for assessing agency progress and strategically targeting achievement of certain petroleum reduction activities, mitigation planning is most effective when site and even vehicle-specific data are available. Understanding fleet profiles, mission needs, and vehicle usage at this high level of detail facilitates informed vehicle and equipment decision-making.
