Green Trucks Toolkit

The Green Trucks Toolkit (GTT) was developed by Clean Air Asia under the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Core Environment Program Biodiversity Conservation Corridors Initiative (CEP-BCI).

This toolkit is a simple, easy-to-use Excel-based model aimed at assisting truck fleet managers in estimating the baseline impacts of their fleets, and evaluating the impacts of applying different technologies and strategies that improve vehicle efficiency and/or reduce pollution. It is primarily based on the UNEP-TNT Clean Fleet Management Toolkit.

The toolkit enables the users to estimate the following vehicle-related emissions from their fleet:

• Carbon dioxide
• Particulate matter
• Nitrogen oxides
• Carbon monoxide
• Volatile organic compounds
• Sulfur oxides
• Lead (for gasoline trucks)

In addition to emissions, fleet efficiency baseline indicators – such as the amount of emissions per ton-km and the amount of fuel consumed per ton-km – are also outputs provided by the tool.

The toolkit also allows the evaluation of scenarios involving the employment of technologies and strategies that are geared toward improving truck fuel efficiency and reducing pollution:

• Eco-driving
• Improved maintenance
• Aerodynamic styling
• Low-rolling resistance tires
• Idling reduction
• Reduction of sulfur in diesel and gasoline
• Reduction/elimination of lead in gasoline
• Emission-control devices
• Replacement of diesel and gasoline trucks with LPG/CNG trucks
