PRLog (Press Release) – Sep 07, 2011 – Recently, the city council approved a tender for the delivering of sustainable bio-fuels in an effort to make a “Sustainable Sydney” by the year 2030. The Eco-Drive training program would enable staff members of the Council to obtain the skills and conduct to effectively lower emission levels to the lowest achievable levels.
The City’s vehicle fleet currently consists of 450 vehicles, more than 1000 drivers and plant items that use over 1,000,000 litres of fuel annually, releasing approximately 3,000 tonnes annually of carbon dioxide.
Drivers will gain awareness and understanding of the effects of climate change and the effect that vehicle emissions have on it. AlertForce succeeded over the eight (two of those submissions were considered ‘non-conforming’ and were thus immediately denied) tender submissions.
Tender submissions were reviewed based on elements such as; tender price, environmental management systems, quality assurance, demonstrated experience, occupational health and safety and the ability to meet the required objectives and suitability for the city.
“We are pleased with this opportunity to carefully, and effectively, train approximately 1000 staff (500 field workers and 500 office staff) and has been specially designed to reduce carbon emissions and improve fuel efficiency for the City of Sydney,” says Brendan Torazzi, AlertForce company founder.
The City has pledged to ensure that AlertForce adheres to the required performance principles by evaluating their performance against various performance indicators.
