Fleet Management at large and small companies alike are heavily investing into ways to decarbonize their vehicles, and in some cases, are cutting costs doing so.
While some of this is due to increased pressure from green policies, like California’s Advanced Clean Truck that requires the phasing in of zero-emission trucks and various European cities building zones that ban fossil-fueled vehicles and incentivize the zero-emission alternative. Below are the top 25 most sustainable fleets.
