Fleet Advantage, a business analytics and life cycle cost management company, announced a new focus on helping clients transition to a low-carbon economy and achieve corporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals. This focus on ESG is illustrated in its latest video.
“At the heart of our ESG-centric strategy is an industry-best data analytics focus that relies on real-time business intelligence to help steer clients toward more environmentally-sound business decisions,” said Katerina Jones, VP marketing and business development for Fleet Advantage. “We are proud to have pioneered the use of data analytics to help fleet customers run their operations more efficiently and environmentally responsible over the years.”
The company works with clients on the social criteria component of their ESG strategies, whereby fleets need to operate the newest and safest trucks to attract and retain a greater pool of diverse drivers and staff, through its Safety-First Program. And in terms of the governance factors of decision-making, Fleet Advantage provides analytics, processes, and transparency for organizations to meet legal requirements and satisfy stakeholders.
Fleet Advantage was founded in 2008 by John Flynn with a goal of advocating for solutions that would reduce emissions over time. Years ago, the company introduced emissions scorecards and a truck exchange program that helped fleets meet new GHG-1 federal standards and calculated fuel economy gains at 2.5% MPG and CO2 reductions. Fleet Advantage says it has saved customers approximately $250 million and 175,000 metric tons in emissions to date.
