Fleet Forum announced in March 2012 that it is partnering with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to conduct a series of Clean Fleet Strategy workshops. The workshops are aimed at training vehicle fleet managers to operate their vehicle fleets more efficiently and effectively through use of a unique UNEP clean fleet management toolkit. Designed specifically by UNEP for vehicle fleets use, the toolkit measures the fleets’ carbon footprint and has demonstrable, quantifiable consequent savings in fuel/vehicle maintenance and lower pollution emissions.
The first of the workshops will be held on May 8 2012 in Nairobi, Kenya with another in April in Geneva. Others are planned to be held in London, Latin America and Asia over the course of the year.
“We’re delighted to implement this essential Clean Fleet programme in a practical way, partnering together with UNEP to conduct workshops that will improve fleet efficiency and lower environmental impacts,” says Paul Jansen, Fleet Forum Executive Director.
Other companies that have implemented the UNEP clean fleet management toolkit include TNT Turkey and Meralco South Distribution Services, Philippines.
Over 628 fleet owners, operators and managers in 245 companies in 58 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East have trained in use of the toolkit over the past four years.
Fleet Forum is a member of the UNEP based Partnership for clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV) and is dedicated to the improvement of transportation performance in road safety, cost efficiency, and environmental impact.
