Fleet Advantage announced a plan to focus on helping its clients transition to achieve corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals.
“At the heart of our ESG-centric strategy is an industry-best data analytics focus that relies on real-time business intelligence to help steer clients toward more environmentally-sound business decisions,” said Katerina Jones, vice president of marketing and business development for Fleet Advantage, in a press release.
Several years ago the company introduced emissions scorecards, and a truck exchange program with financial flexibility in mind that made it beneficial to operate newer, clean-diesel engines. This program also helped fleets meet federal greenhouse gas standards and calculated fuel economy gains at 2.5% MPG and carbon dioxide reductions.
Today, Fleet Advantage customers are boasting vastly improved environmental records while implementing ESG strategies in front of customers, regulators, and other critical stakeholders, according to the company. In total, the company says it has saved customers approximately 175,000 metric tons in emissions since inception.
In addition to environmental stewardship, social criteria are also playing a major role in companies’ ESG strategies. It’s important that fleets are operating the newest and safest trucks that help attract and retain a greater pool of diverse drivers and other staff, the company said. Fleet Advantage’s specification experts work with each fleet to design new trucks for maximum safety, fuel efficiency, lowest maintenance cost, and highest resale values through the company’s Safety-First Program.
Fleet Advantage also provides analytics, processes, and transparency so that organizations can meet legal requirements and satisfy every stakeholder in the process. The company believes that the long-term success of any business calls for a diverse body of talent that can bring fresh ideas, perspectives, and viewpoints into the workplace.
