FleetSmart – ecoEnergy for fleets
Did you know that from 1990 to 2004, the number of heavy-duty diesel vehicles in Canada increased by 110 percent, with an 83 percent increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions? This growth increases health and environmental problems.
As a driver educator, you can help teach your students how to conserve fuel and reduce operating expense.
What is FleetSmart?
FleetSmart is a program by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to promote energy-efficient practices that can reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
NRCan offers free practical advice on how energy-efficient vehicles and business practices can reduce your fleet's operating costs, fuel consumption and GHG emissions, improve productivity and increase your competitiveness.
