The Fraser Basin Council, in collaboration with Fleet Challenge Ontario, has awarded an E3 Fleet Gold Rating to the County of Simcoe in Ontario. The rating recognizes the accomplishments of Simcoe County in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, investing in energy efficient technologies, committing to staff training and achieving excellence in fleet management.

Since 2002 the Simcoe County has taken many steps to achieve superior fleet performance:

  • participating in the Ontario Municipal Fleet Review Program through Fleet Challenge Ontario
  • right-sizing County vehicles
  • implementing an anti-idling policy, including the installation of anti-idling devices in County emergency vehicles
  • promoting route planning and load optimization
  • using fuel management software
  • installing GPS in a majority of vehicles
  • participating in experimental green vehicle trials
  • using a green vehicle clause in all vehicle procurement processes.

“County Council is proud to be recognized by the Fraser Basin Council for having one of Canada’s greenest vehicle fleets,” said Warden Cal Patterson. “County staff has shown leadership by streamlining our vehicle fleet operations and implementing initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This includes Council’s approval to the Green Fleet Action Plan in 2013, which will guide our greenhouse gas emission reductions over the next five years.”

The County of Simcoe (www.simcoe.ca) is composed of sixteen member municipalities and provides crucial public services to County residents, as well as paramedic and social services to the cities of Barrie and Orillia.

E3 Fleet Partners

The E3 Fleet program reflects the commitment and expertise of many people, including some of the country’s most innovative fleet managers. All have a common passion – to see Canada’s fleets take a cleaner, green road to the future.

The Fraser Basin Council launched E3 Fleet in 2006 in cooperation with Climate Change Central (Alberta) and Fleet Challenge. Since October 2016, the program has been managed by Richmond Sustainability Initiatives (RSI).

The E3 Fleet Charter members were also pivotal to its success: Auto-Gas Propane, BC Hydro, BC Ministry of Environment, City of Coquitlam, Corporation of Delta, Enbridge, City of Hamilton, Hydro One, City of Kelowna, Township of Langley, District of Maple Ridge, City of North Vancouver, Novex Couriers, City of Prince George, District of Saanich, University of BC and Municipality of Whistler. We’ve enjoyed the journey so far, and it’s only just begun. Join us!
