The present study examines the relationship between economical driving, energy management and (reductions in) fuel consumption, among 16 companies that have received support from Enova to work with economic driving, and a Reference sample of drivers from assumed average companies. We rate the companies’ measures based on the Eco Ladder for energy management, and find that the companies at level 3, which have introduced the most measures aimed at economical driving and energy management, have had the largest reductions in fuel consumption (10 %), while the companies at level 2 have generally achieved somewhat lower reductions. This supports the idea behind the Eco Ladder. The drivers also report a number of positive additional effects of the measures aimed at economical driving and energy management: they experience more well-being at work, more self-confidence and more pride as drivers, and they also perceive that the company’s reputation has improved.
