NAFA’s Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program brings clarity, definition, and recognition to what sustainability means for fleets. The program is set to become the standard for realizing concrete improvements in air quality through reducing emissions, increasing fuel efficiency, and reducing fuel use.
The program includes tools to measure emissions reduction, fuel consumption, and quantifying increases in fuel efficiency. NAFA’s Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program directly complements the DOE National Fleet Partnership program, and other federal efforts, by recognizing fleets for real results achieved in their sustainability efforts.
