Fleet vehicles are driven hard, averaging nearly double the mileage, fuel consumption and emissions of personal vehicles. As a result, fleets are not only expensive to operate but are also a major source of global warming pollution. However, there are easy, cost-effective ways for fleets to “go green” and reduce their environmental impacts and operating costs at the same time.
This guide presents a proven framework for greening your fleet. Fortune 500 companies, including Abbott, DuPont and Owens Corning, have already implemented this framework and are reaping the benefits. The strategies presented here were created by a partnership between Environmental Defense Fund, a leading national nonprofit organization, and PHH Arval, one of the world’s largest fleet management services providers. In its first year, over a dozen companies and 60,000 vehicles benefited from the program.
