The City of Richmond is the first municipality to receive the highest (Platinum) rating from E3 Fleet, a Canada-wide program that recognizes excellence in fleet management and environmental performance. The Award was presented by Fraser Basin Council Chair Colin Hansen to Mayor Malcolm Brodie at a meeting of Richmond City Council on November 28 in recognition of Richmond’s work in adopting a green fleet plan, implementing better data tracking and analysis, right-sizing its fleet with more efficient vehicles and other steps to green up its fleet.
