Environmental Management System
Oregon state government's Fleet Administration (Fleet) has implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) as part of its policy to promote sustainability in all facets of the Fleet program.
Fleet is recognized as one of the nation's only government fleets to obtain this standard.
This is their brand new policy which reads like a third grader tried to copy the Declaration of Independence and make it about Earth Day. Setting high standards is a great thing but in the private sector a cost/benefit analysis would be done to see if meeting this standard is worth it. Government can say "let's buy 1,000 new Prius's with the taxpayers money" and it just happens.
Chicken Little has access to our pocketbooks.
