Fife Council held its second ECO Stars workshop to help Fife fleet operators become more efficient and improve local air quality.
Following the successful launch of Fife ECO Stars in October 2014, Fife Council held another workshop for local fleet operators (15 March) at City Chambers, Dunfermline.
- heard presentations on a range of topics including air quality and driver training,
- took part in lively discussions relating to fuel efficiency, fleet management and cultural change in organisations, and
- shared their experiences of the scheme.
Currently Fife’s scheme has over 70 members and membership continues to grow. Last December, we launched the Fife ECO Stars Taxi scheme which already has 18 members.
Roy Stewart, Senior Manager awarded ECO stars certificates to new members of the scheme during the event.
Roy Stewart said: “Signing up to ECO Stars provides tools and support to fleet operators to help reduce their costs and environmental impact.
“We’re delighted so many Fife firms have now joined the scheme, and it’s great to see local fleet operators committed to improving the efficiency of their fleet, developing their eco-credentials and reducing their environmental impact.”
