NAFA Fleet Management Association is pleased to announce its next accredited fleet via NAFA’s Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program is the Minnesota Department of Transportation. They join the City of Anaheim, CA; the County of Ventura, CA; Kent Fire Department RFA, of Kent, WA; the City of Austin, TX; and the University of California-Davis; all accomplished, recently accredited fleets.
These fleets have successfully demonstrated that a credible sustainability plan is in place, and real, meaningful progress is being made toward reducing their total emissions and the negative environmental impact made by extraneous carbon fuel usage. Minnesota Department of Transportation joins an ever-growing list of NAFA-accredited fleets that are bringing positive action and quantifiable value to their organizations, with City of Minneapolis – Fleet Services Division and the Minnesota Department of Administration’s Fleet & Surplus Services among the ranks.
“As a NAFA-accredited fleet, Minnesota Department of Transportation sets an example that many more fleets can follow, and will be honored and recognized further for their leadership,” said NAFA Chief Executive Officer Phillip E, Russo, CAE. “NAFA expects that with the program’s easy enrollment process, many more fleets will soon join them, bringing true and quantifiable sustainability improvements to their organizations.”
NAFA, in collaboration with CALSTART, will update attendees on the remarkable progress made by the Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program during NAFA’s annual conference, the Institute & Expo (I&E), in Austin, Texas, April 19-22. The Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program includes tools and metrics to concretely measure (and score) fleet progress in emissions reduction, fuel consumption, and increases in fuel efficiency.
NAFA’s roster of accredited fleets also includes: Chesterfield County, Virginia; City of Boston Central Fleet Management; City of Chesapeake, VA; City of Sacramento, Fleet Management Division; County of Sonoma Fleet Operations; Florida Power & Light; Ontario Ministry of Transportation; Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; Time Warner Cable; University of Illinois – Facilities & Services; and Yale University.
