TORONTO, Ont. — Natural Resources Canada’s ecoENERGY for Fleets (FleetSmart) and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership are holding a forum for transportation industry professionals to explore practical solutions to today’s “green” issues.
The FleetSmartWay Forum will focus on the return on investment from green practices and the managing education, training, and technology necessary for success in a green world.
“A series of seven panels over two days, highlighted by an engaging keynote speaker, will provide delegates with the tools and knowledge required to calculate the costs to implement green practices in their fleet operations,” organizers said in a release.
The first day will focus on calculating the return on investment in corporate operations, driver training and technologies. The second day will focus on building a green plan, overcoming barriers, and managing, measuring and encouraging success. The final word will come from the buyers of green services.
Organizers say the forum will be of interest to fleet executives and managers, supervisors, driver trainers, labour representatives, training schools, carriers and shippers, government officials, and consultants serving the on-road transportation industry.
The event will take place at Weston Bristol Place Hotel in Toronto Sept 30-Oct. 2. An early bird special of $525 per person is available for those who register before Aug. 29. The cost is $595 thereafter. Single day purchases are also available for $325.
