Fleet Meet is an interactive dialogue discussing the latest global trends in fleet management and contrasting their impact in the U.S. and the European fleet markets that is co-presented by AF Editor Mike Antich and Hans Damen, managing partner for Fleet360.

Today’s topic includes a discussion on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which is a collection of 17 interlinked global goals developed by the United Nations that are designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.” The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by 2030.

🎙Today’s topics include:

  • Corporations adopt SDG goals on a voluntary basis and comply with required reporting requirements.
  • Fleet operations at participating corporations play an integral role in helping to achieve SDG goals dealing with sustainability or reducing the corporation’s greenhouse footprint.
  • SDG goals extend beyond the participating corporation and also includes suppliers in the corporate supply chain.
  • Mario Moses, manager mobility, global mobility at Bayer Corporation, explains the process of identifying regions where to electrify the company’s local fleet operations.
