Abbott - PHH GreenFleet

“PHH GreenFleet” is North America’s first comprehensive greenhouse gas management program for corporate fleets. The program helps fleets measure, reduce and offset greenhouse gas emissions. PHH Arval, a leading fleet  management company, collaborated with Environmental
Defense Fund to develop the program. Abbott was the first company to partner with both organizations. The GreenFleet program helped Abbott’s progress toward its goal of reducing its global greenhouse gas emissions 10 percent below 2004 levels by 2010. As part of the program,
Abbott committed to going “carbon neutral” with its commercial fleet by improving fuel efficiency and by purchasing carbon credits.

The project achieved success by starting with specific goals and objectives and a clear roadmap for getting there. Because each partner actively contributed, each had a stake in the outcome and was able to keep the project momentum going.
