It is estimated that more than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day every year, making it the largest secular observance in the world. The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970, and it sparked an environmental movement that led to the creation of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) later that year.
Earth Day was also influential in passing environmental legislation like the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, National Environmental Education Act, and more.
Fleet Advantage recognizes Earth Day’s 2022 #InvestInOurPlanet by offering complimentary Emissions Scorecards for corporate transportation fleets in its ongoing efforts to promote more eco-friendly operations.
Fleet Advantage was founded in 2008 with the goal of developing solutions to significantly reduce emissions using a sustainable Fleet Modernization Program, according to a company release. The company has introduced Emissions Scorecards, early truck EXchangeIT program, and financial flexibility to acquire use of clean-diesel engines more frequently as the emission technology advances. This program has helped fleets meet GHG-1and -2 Federal mandates to reduce CO2, while saving millions of dollars year-over-year with improved MPG and reduced fuel consumption.
In March, Fleet Advantage announced a new program to help corporate truck fleets certify their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) output, as recently mandated under a proposed rule issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Fleet Advantage is the only finance lessor that has been certifying such measures for a decade with a focus on tractor trailer fleets that operate high annual mileages (MPY), according to the company.
“We are extremely proud of the commitment and dedication we’ve had in investing in our planet by leading the industry toward a reduced carbon footprint while continuing to help drive America’s businesses forward,” said Katerina Jones, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Fleet Advantage.
Through the pioneering efforts of Fleet Advantage, the transportation fleet industry is paying closer attention to their truck’s lifecycles to understand where they can drive sustainability measures by optimizing replacement cycles. Rather than extending the truck’s use for several years, companies are leveraging Fleet Modernization Studies and Fleet Advantage’s emissions scorecards, that scrutinize truck’s performance data and economic factors to determine an optimum procurement and disposal strategy.
As part of the comprehensive Fleet Modernization Study, the Emissions Scorecard reviews the entire fleet by year, make, model, and compares fuel and mileage data and provides detailed information on CO2 reduction in metric tons and gallons of fuel saved, each time the truck was replaced, as well as forecasted savings. Contact Fleet Advantage for your scorecard and study.
