Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles Better Air Quality (BAQ08) Pre-Event, 11 November 2008 - Bangkok, Thailand

1. Description of the pre-event online at http://www.baq2008.org/preevent-pcfv

"The Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV) and UNEP will be launching its 'Clean Fleet Management Toolkit' in Asia at this BAQ 2008 pre-event.

This Toolkit contains a number of tools that help organizations develop a strategy for reducing the environmental and health impacts of their vehicle fleet and with minimal information and inputs, develop practical strategies and scenarios for corrective and cost-effective action.

The toolkit is a step-by-step system for beginners and experienced users and managers comprising of five steps (http://www.unep.org/tnt-unep/toolkit/);

  • Awareness: Introducing the issues on environment and transport
  • Impact: Estimating your fleet's impacts on environment and health
  • Actions: Identifying the options available to reduce environment and health impacts
  • Strategy: Developing a strategy by choosing selected actions and setting targets
  • Monitoring: Keeping track of the effects of your strategy and improvements
During the pre-event, Fleet Managers/Operators and the CAI-Asia Country Network Coordinators will undergo hands-on training on clean fleet strategy development. This will enable them, when they return to their countries, to use the toolkit to reduce the environmental and health impacts of emissions from their organization's vehicles."

Participant Company Details

Transjakarta, Jakarta
Transjakarta is the Bus Rapid Transit system in Jakarta.

Sajha Yatayat
Sajha Yatayat was registered on 3 Falgun, 2018 (October 1961) with the goal of providing affordable public transportation throughout the country. The organization started with 14 staff and 6 buses in 2019 and by 2058, it had over 1000 staff and a fleet of 183 buses. In January 2002, the government closed down Sajha Yatayat due to financial and managerial problems. The institution was revived about a year later when the Appeal Court decided that the closure of Sajha Yatayatwas illegal. Sajha buses were back on the streets of Kathmandu on 19 April to begin its new journey. The revival of Sajha Yatayat, after being out of operation for over a year, has brought to life once again the opportunity of a well functioning public transportation system within Kathmandu and a reliable long distance transporter between cities in Nepal.

G-Liner, Philippines.
A bus company in the Philippines recommended to participate in this pre-event by the Land Transportation Office Chief. It is one of the active bus companies in the Philippines which cooperate in LTO's activities.

Philippine Business for the Environment (PBE).
The PBE, an environmental non-profit organization established in 1992 by private individuals with the mission to help Philippine industry address its environmental concerns and responsibilities (http://www.pbe.org.ph/), is interested to pilot the toolkit in Philippine companies and then share their best practices in a sustained training / advocacy program which PBE/ CAI-Asia Center and CAI-Asia's Country Network - the Partnership for Clean Air - can roll out after the training.
