Governments and corporations alike have adopted fleet electrification as a cornerstone of their plans to curb carbon emissions and head off climate change. As part of a pledge to make the federal government carbon neutral by 2050, an executive order from President Joe Biden targets an all-electric fleet by 2035. That is a fleet of 645,000 vehicles driving a whopping 4.5 billion miles a year.
Electric Fleets: Beyond Environmental Impacts
Among our fleet management projects, Karsun supports the modernization of GSA’s Advanced Fleet Platform. Karsun is proud to participate in this vital work preparing our nation for a changing climate. By using an electric fleet, governments can reduce their carbon footprint and help combat climate change. Electric vehicles also produce fewer pollutants than traditional vehicles, which can lead to improved public health. By reducing air pollution, governments can help prevent respiratory illnesses and other health problems associated with poor air quality. Moreover, electric vehicles can be powered by a variety of sources, including renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. By using an electric fleet, the government can reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and increase its energy security.
Envisioning the Future: Empowering Local Communities
Fleet electrification is a unique opportunity to provide tangible impacts and community impact while addressing our changing climate. Federal agencies can lead by example and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability by committing to all electric fleets. This can inspire other constituents and localities to follow suit and make similar changes.
As an expert in both fleet management modernization and grants management, Karsun offers a unique opportunity for agencies to lead from the front on these initiatives. Our fleet and grants experts can help agencies modernize their systems to flow down grants to their constituents to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and other initiatives.
