ICLEI Oceania is calling for input from council fleet managers across Australia to help develop a national inventory
of local government vehicle fleets.
Funded by the Australian Government and a first of its kind, the study is designed to increase understanding of emissions impacts and reduction opportunities in this sector.
Opportunities for emissions reductions might include new vehicle technologies, fuels and fleet management
According to ICLEI , the knowledge gained through this survey will help develop effective projects and strategies for
key action across council vehicle fleets. It says strong input from all Australian councils is critical to ensure that the data
– which will be used to inform future local, state and federal programs – is accurate.
The study is an initiative of ICLEI Oceania’s Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Australia program. However,
non-CCP councils are also encouraged to take part in the study to increase the quality and value of this data for
all Australian local governments. Councils have until Friday 26 September 2008 to submit their data using a
specially design workbook.
Fleet managers/coordinators can download a copy of the workbook from the CCP Sustainable
Transport website via the following link: www.iclei.org/index.php?id=8393
