Fleet's 'green crusaders' sought to lead new Government initiative

THE Government is looking for green crusaders to spearhead environmental initiatives within the fleet industry. These green champions will use their own expertise in implementing successful environmental fleet policies to encourage other fleet operators to follow their example.

The project is central to the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions' Energy Efficiency Best Practice Programme and is being overseen by the Energy Technology Support Unit. An ETSU spokesman said: 'We are looking for a range of consultants and/or organisations that have been instrumental in introducing measures like a fuel efficiency driver training scheme or brought in fuel-efficient fleet purchasing schemes.'

They should also have a proven track record in fuel management, reducing overall fleet mileage, and establishing green transport plans. Successful candidates will be expected to man a freephone line offering green fleet advice, and to make site visits to fleets interested in improving their environmental credentials.
