Electrifying your corporate fleet
The Sustainable Growth Coalition, a business-led partnership aimed at equitably advancing corporate sustainability, has been convening conversations to discuss how organizations are navigating the transition to electric vehicles in their fleets and supply chains.
As a result of those meetings, Coalition members sought to create a database to assist corporate fleet managers and sustainability practitioners throughout the process. The group then conducted a landscape scan to audit available materials.
Below is a summary of resources curated by the Coalition.
