3 . What is the core focus of your new product or innovation ?
The core focus of our Native Pathways program is to provide an opportunity to our clients to offset their vehicle emissions or fleet emissions . As part of their vehicle lease or product service , through small contributions , we are creating reforestation in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor in the Southwest Australia , which is a global diversity hotspot , is being restored .
We are proud to be planting native trees to assist in reducing carbon emissions and this project aims to remove existing carbon from the atmosphere to restore a healthy , functioning landscape .
4 . In what ways are your solutions unique from your competitors ?
While carbon offset programs are not new , most offsets are sent off-shore as this is where cheaper offsets can be obtained . For us at
StreetFleet , we opted to keep our offsets right here in Australia and while , admittedly , these are the ‘ gold standard ’ in offsets , we believe this is what our clients expect from working with StreetFleet . We also allow our clients to incorporate offsetting easily into any of our products , from leasing and finance through to vehicles that are purchased and managed .
5 . What genuine value are you providing to fleet buyers ?
In the current business environment , clients are looking for more than just services and products , with a large focus on fleet management companies that can offer added value to the client ’ s experience . Climate change is a current global concern , and we see more conscientious drivers who are looking to be more environmentally friendly with their vehicle or fleet . By giving clients an option to have their carbon offset , we are not only aligning with our company values , it also brings more client satisfaction , a confirmation of social corporate responsibility by StreetFleet and an accomplishment of both parties for contributing to the sustainability of the planet where , small actions can make a big impact .
