AddSecure Eco-Driving Challenge reduces 12 900 tons CO2

During 2021, almost 11,000 drivers participated in the AddSecure Eco-Driving Challenge. The competition was a great success where about 75 companies, organized through 135 teams with approximately 7,400 vehicles, participated. The Finnish transport companies Powder-Trans and Ahola Transport won the most prestigious prizes for greatest reduction of CO2 and best eco-driving score.

AddSecure today announced the results from its competition within Eco-Driving 2021. The competition, called "AddSecure Eco-Driving Challenge", is voluntary among AddSecure’s Smart Transport customers and is based on the AddSecure Eco-Driving Index. When AddSecure analysed the data, the improved driving behaviour proved to deliver major fuel savings. When comparing the 2021 results with 2017 (when the challenge started), AddSecure's calculations show that the competing companies reduced their total consumption by approximately 4,9 million litres of diesel on a yearly basis. This results in reduced CO2 emissions of approximately 12,900 tons and savings of about 7,4 million Euros.

To make the competition more exciting, the 75 competing companies are divided into 6 different classes based on country (SE, NO, FI, DK, DE, FR) and in one class for bus operators in Europe. During the competition AddSecure has continuously updated a performance chart to keep all stakeholders informed about the competition’s developments. On the performance chart, the leaders in three categories are presented:

  1. Largest CO2-savings in absolute terms (“AddSecure Eco-Momentum”)
  2. Best eco-driving average (based on 6 driving parameters)
  3. Best improvement of eco-driving index

See below the winners in the 2021 AddSecure Eco Driving Challenge in each class and category.
