NAFA, one of the major U.S. nonprofit associations for fleet management, is working with fellow clean-transportation nonprofit CALSTART to establish a Sustainable Fleet Standard Program in order to promote fleet fuel efficiency and improved emissions.
‘The importance of sustainable practices becomes more evident each day,’ says NAFA President Claude T. Masters. ‘By becoming more energy independent and efficient, our members will extend benefits to their bottom line and their customer base.’
The program will allow member organizations to assess how to enhance their practices in a way that decreases their fuel dependence and emissions, while increasing the efficiency of their vehicles, improving performance, and reducing harmful pollutants. CALSTART focuses heavily on alternative-fuel vehicles and clean-diesel initiatives, which will likely figure into the Sustainable Fleet Standard Program.
