Congratulations to the Municipal Region of Halton, which received a Bronze rating in January 2014, becoming the first regional municipality in Canada to be E3 Fleet rated.

Over the past several years, staff at Halton have worked hard to incorporate best practices into Halton's fleet management. To minimize the negative impact of emissions from its fleet, Halton has developed policies and programs such as an Anti-Idling Policy, an Equipment Use and Procurement Policy, and a Smart Commute program for staff. In addition, environmental practices have been incorporated into vehicle operations, maintenance, and end-of-life vehicle management.

Greening the fleet is a goal in Halton's Corporate Sustainability action Plan, as well as The Citizen's Priorities: Halton Region's 2011-2014 Action Plan, demonstrating Halton's commitment to sustainability at all levels.
