Applied Driving began working with the National Green Standard (NGS) almost as soon as NGS began. The relationship has brought many benefits to both our organizations, and we still hold the accolade as the first service company to have taken formal accreditation through NGS.
At Applied Driving, we are proud to be an award-winning, global company with an impressive record for driver safety and performance management solutions.
- 20+ awards in the fleet sector
- Over 300,000 drivers, spanning 52 countries.
- Measurable cost savings for existing clients who have witnessed a reduced incident rate from 115% to 52% in just 12 months, and a 34% reduction in claims in their first year.
Working with NGS provides additional kudos for our environmental impact too, not just for our company itself but for our extensive client base. For example, our Triggered Training™ includes e-learning modules, safety videos, and messages. Another innovative solution that meets NGS criteria is ‘Companion+’. ‘Companion+’ analyses driver performance and mitigates potential risk autonomously, and is available in the form of a smartphone app or via telematics integration.
Our Chairman, Dr. Jim Golby said “Working with the National Green Standard has helped us focus on a broader set of KPIs and has made us consider our approach to environmental management more deeply. This in turn has supported many conversations with our wider client base to encourage them into this way of approaching their own ESG needs.”
National Green Standard accreditation is a great way to demonstrate how your organization is doing its bit to support the environment, community, and local economy. With three key Principles that look at how socially responsible, economically viable, and environmentally sound an organization is, NGS sets out criteria for a journey toward recognition of the good practices that a robust ESG approach should take. With three levels of accreditation, the NGS provides stretch through an action plan based on the assessment process or can be used in-house as a tool for self-improvement.
Mary McLuskey, NGS’ Founder stated, “Applied Driving have seen the benefits to their own organization and have been supporting their client base to reap those benefits too. In many ways working with Applied Driving has been a natural step for NGS as many organizations seek to reduce fuel costs, move to more environmental ways of delivery and focus on the social impact of their activities. Applied Driving support is just one way that organizations can tap into the growing ESG movement and by using the National Green Standard as an ESG road map the combination of both is a very powerful recipe for environmental success.”
