Driving toward a Lower Carbon Energy Future

In November 2019, FortisBC received the E3 Fleet Gold Rating Award recognizing their successful internal initiatives and environmental performance.

FortisBC’s GreenSense Program raises employee awareness about their fleet's impact on the environment and sets regulations to help reduce their carbon emissions.

“We are proud that the GreenSense Program, as well as other initiatives, have shown significant results and it’s great to be recognized by E3 Fleet for these accomplishments,” said Tracey Swanson, fleet support supervisor, FortisBC. “Part of this program was to implement our Idle Reduction Guidelines, reducing and measuring the amount of idling in our fleets. With the success of these guidelines, it’s led to the development of other initiatives to improve our environmental performance.”
