Meeting ECOSTARS: Cleaner Fleets – Authority meets Operator

11 December 2013

The ECOSTARS fleet recognition scheme provides local governments a method to engage with operators of freight and passenger fleets. The latest newsletter (released at last week's Polis Conference) invites to the project's final event "Cleaner Fleets – Authority meets Operator”.

This newsletter outlines the final event's character to which representatives of local governments, operators of vehicle fleets as well as associations working on cleaner transport fleets are invited. The ECOSTARS Forum "Cleaner Fleets – Authority meets Operator” takes place on 19 March 2014 in Santander, Spain.

The newsletter also features updates on recent activities of local ECOSTARS schemes across Europe, on the growth of ECOSTARS in Scotland and the first ever UK wide meeting of ECOSTARS managers. A closer look is taken at the specific challenges that Ostrava faces: In addition to adverse geographical circumstances, air quality in Ostrava is highly impacted by industry, heating and transport. This issue’s "Scheme in the Spotlight” allows you to get an insight on how the city enhances air quality with the help of tools like ECOSTARS and beyond.

ECOSTARS newsletters are released twice a year. To receive ECOSTARS updates and newsletter directly into your mailbox, subscribe here.
