Topics:Fleet Challenge is a Canadian not-for-profit organization that has been focused on helping Canadian fleet managers reduce their greenhouse gases and eco-footprint for more than a decade. The name came from the Canadian federal government’s announcement in 2004 of its plans to “green” its federal fleet - and its challenge to private businesses to do the same. Fleet Challenge manages the E3 Green Fleet program and we are a U.S. SmartWay partner organization.
The mission of Fleet Challenge is to reduce carbon and smog-causing emissions from on-road transportation fleets by helping to responsibly facilitate the adaptation of proven green fleet technologies and best management practices. Since 2005 Fleet Challenge has worked with almost 200 fleets to help them assess, plan, develop and implement green fleet strategies and technologies.
In light of the U.S and Canada’s recent announcements and commitment to fossil fuel and GHG reduction resulting from the Paris climate change talks, Roger Smith’s presentation will include case-studies of past examples of “fleet greening” in Canada, including innovative solutions to reducing GHG’s and operating costs simultaneously.
- To provide real case histories about fleets that have successfully implemented green fleet plans around the three core values of corporate social responsibility (people, planet, profit)
- To accelerate knowledge transfer via real-world experiences of peer fleets
- To increase awareness in fleet managers of imminent changes in U.S. environmental policies that could impact their organizations
