  • Building a Greener Fleet Program That is Safe, Affordable, and Keeps Drivers Happy

    Do you want to reduce the environmental impact of your company cars and trucks without sacrificing your safety standards or driver satisfaction? Have you been searching for more ways to reduce your fleet costs?

    In a recent survey of fleet managers, 77% percent said they had been asked by someone in their organization about the environmental impact of their fleet. More and more companies are taking a closer look at fleet emissions and looking for ways to reduce that impact. Combined with that initiative, fleet managers are being challenged to find new and innovative ways to cut fuel use without raising cost.


    In this webinar, you will learn how fleet managers from two very different fleets were able to reduce emissions, cut costs and keep their drivers happy. They will share best practices appropriate for any fleet and provide guidance on how to start building a program at your company.


    Key takeaways:


    • Best practices for implementing a program to reduce fleet greenhouse gas emissions
    • How to work with your environmental department
    • How to sell proposed fleet changes to sales leadership and to individual drivers
    • Different strategies for communicating changes to drivers
