Logan City Council has been awarded the Fleet Environment Award, recognising their exceptional achievements in sustainability and environmental stewardship in fleet management. 

Path to Fleet Sustainability 

Under the visionary leadership of the Fleet Team, Logan City Council has made remarkable strides in aligning their fleet operations with environmental goals.  

The Council’s 2021-26 Green Fleet Strategy, developed in collaboration with various stakeholders, stands as a foundation of their environmental efforts. This comprehensive plan focuses on modernising fleet management to enhance operational efficiencies while supporting the Council’s broader carbon neutrality certification. 

Key Initiatives and Achievements 

Logan City Council’s Green Fleet Strategy has been impactful, introducing several initiatives that enhance fleet sustainability. Central to these efforts is the transition to hybrid and electric vehicles, significantly reducing emissions and paving the way for a zero-emissions future. The Council has also installed multiple EV charging stations across key locations, powered by 100% Greenpower and supported by rooftop solar on existing Council buildings. 

Solar power plays a significant role in fleet and depot-based functions, with Council’s Marsden facility now powered by a 100-kilowatt solar PV system. Furthermore, some of this solar power is harnessed by a battery for use by the site overnight.  

Implementing in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS) across all fleet vehicles has greatly enhanced operational efficiency. This system provides real-time data, enabling better monitoring and management of vehicle performance, which has led to improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, along with informing decisions when identifying assets suitable for EV transition. 

The Council’s dedication to continuous improvement is further evidenced by their attainment of ISO 9001 and the Motor Traders’ Association Green Stamp Environmental Accreditation. These certifications highlight Logan City Council’s commitment to maintaining high environmental standards and fostering a culture of sustainability. 

The results of these initiatives speak for themselves. Logan City Council has achieved a 20% reduction in pollution and waste, with 50% of their passenger vehicles now being electric or hybrid, ahead of their target schedule. The Council’s proactive approach has reduced its environmental impact and serves as a model for other organisations.  

Council’s Vision for a Sustainable Future 

Reflecting on the award, Thomas Brayley Manager | Plant Fleet Services said, “Winning the Fleet Environment Award is a tremendous honour for Logan City Council. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team in driving sustainability and environmental responsibility. Our Green Fleet Strategy has been pivotal in our journey towards a zero-emissions future, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to create a greener, more sustainable community.” 

Thomas added, “We are incredibly proud of the progress we have made in fleet sustainability. The implementation of our Green Fleet Strategy and our focus on innovative solutions have not only reduced our carbon footprint but also aims set a new standard for our industry. We look forward to continuing our journey towards even greater environmental excellence.” 

Setting New Standards in Fleet Sustainability 

Logan City Council’s commitment to leveraging advanced technologies and fostering a culture of sustainability is evident. Their innovative Green Fleet Strategy and comprehensive environmental initiatives have positioned them as leaders in fleet sustainability, inspiring other organisations to prioritise environmental responsibility and continuous improvement.
