Clean Fleet is an initiative that has been developed by Roads and Maritime Services as part of a continuing commitment to the environment. It is an audited maintenance programme designed to reduce diesel vehicle emissions to improve air quality.
Diesel exhausts emissions are a major source of fine particle pollution and impact on the environment as they contribute 60 per cent of all particulate emissions from road transport.
The program is for operators that want to contribute to improving air quality by committing to maintaining their vehicles in a way that minimises diesel emissions. There are positive attributes to your business by participating in the Clean Fleet programme. Your organisation can save money with potential fuel tax credits through the Australian Taxation Office if you operate heavy vehicles more than 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM). By participating in the nationally accredited programme, your organisation can promote and market itself as being environmentally aware and responsible.
