Making Sustainability Work: 10 Ways to Turn Users Into Stakeholders

January 3, 2013

The No.1 reason corporate sustainability programs are not “sustainable” is due to driver non-compliance. To make sustainability programs work, you need to turn drivers into stakeholders in the program. The overwhelming majority of drivers want to do the right thing; but most do not see sustainability as part of their job responsibilities. How do you create a corporate culture that encourages compliance with corporate sustainability policy?

Proposed 2025 CAFE Standards to be the Catalyst for the Increased Hybridization of Fleets

August 8, 2011

The 2025 CAFE rules will have a dramatic impact on the types of future vehicles in fleet operations. Currently, no OEM can meet the 2025 CAFE standard of 54.5 mpg, which will double the average EPA-rated fuel economy for all OEMs selling vehicles in the U.S. in less than two decades. Today, only a handful of models get 39 mpg or more. To achieve this standard, the government plans to incentivize the use of advanced technologies, such as hybrid powertrains and vehicle electrification.

The Impact of CAFE on Fleet Procurement

May 31, 2011

I foresee fleet procurement patterns changing due to impending federal-mandated corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards in 2016 and 2025. Government CAFE mandates for higher fuel economy, coupled with higher fuel prices, will change the vehicle portfolio mix offered by many OEMs, which in turn will ultimately change the asset composition of tomorrow’s fleets.
