Japanese company Miyama Inc. has announced that they have reached 21.2 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from its truck fleet. This is very close to the company's target of 23 percent reduction by 2010 compared to its 2001 levels. The company says that the annual reduction of 1,869 metric tons was the result of improved environmental awareness among its 163 distribution drivers, as well as its unique eco-driving navigation system. Although Miyama started with a simple "stop at idle" campaign back in 1997, it has developed a system, called Ecodrive MHS-01 "which analyzes the traffic environment and vehicle performance while driving, and provides real-time advice to drivers on energy-efficient driving."
