NAFA Completes Beta Tests of Sustainable Fleet Tool
NAFA’s Sustainable Fleet Standard Program passes important milestone.
NAFA Fleet Management Association and CALSTART have reached a milestone in the development of the Sustainable Fleet Standard Program tool, with the conclusion of first-wave beta testing and delivery of data from Charter Members.
The second wave of participating organizations will begin their work with the Sustainable Fleet Standard tool in late-October, with the final Analysis Team providing review toward the end of 2014.
“This testing and feedback period is crucial to the successful construction of the Sustainable Fleet tool,” said NAFA Chief Executive Officer Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “The effectiveness and the validity of this endeavor depend on fleets being able to use the tool successfully, to gauge all the great things it can do for fleets and sustainable practices, and to chart where improvements are needed. This Sustainable Fleet Standard tool is absolutely being proven for value and effectiveness by some of the largest fleets in North America.”
Having concluded first-wave beta testing, CALSTART is now compiling the feedback from participating organizations, developing reports based on their data, and preparing a status update for mid-October.
The final version of the Sustainable Fleet Standard tool is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2015.
