SEC Inching Closer to Mandated Carbon Disclosure

Will fleet managers have to deal with carbon disclosure in the not-too-distant future

Shareholder Pressure for Carbon Disclosure Puts Corporate Fleets in the Cross Hairs

At many companies, fleet represents a sizeable percent of their carbon footprint.
