NAFA Fleet Management Association, in conjunction with CALSTART, unveiled a four-tier rating system that evaluates fleets based on their environmental performance against world-leading goals, the first of its kind. The program was designed to bring clarity, definition, and recognition to what sustainability means for fleets. The program is set to become an industry standard for recognizing concrete improvements in reducing emissions, increasing fuel efficiency, and reducing fuel use.
“With this new program, fleets will be able to measure, manage and improve. Fleets start at any level of activity – the point is to start down the path: first by base lining where they are, then by validating their progress, and finally, by benchmarking themselves against rigorous standards and the actions of their peers,” said Bill Van Amburg, CALSTART Senior Vice President. “It is the new measure of fleet sustainability.”
