About this specialisation

At organisational level, vehicle fleet emissions represent between 12 - 20% of humanitarian organisation's overall carbon footprint. However, at country office level, vehicle fleets can be the highest contributor to the carbon footprint.

There is a need to apply strategies to lower the impact that fleet has on the climate and environment.

"The practical examples and case studies shared during the training were incredibly helpful. They provided a clear insight into how sustainable fleet management can be implemented effectively."

Daniel Moglia
Technical referent for fleet management

"The definition of the new types of vehicles, like electric and hybrids, and understanding how they work, including myth-busting, was a highlight for me. I also liked learning the new action planning cycle and the broader view in the process of accepting change management for the sustainable fleet and stakeholders' involvement."
