Building Operations receives Canada’s first-ever platinum award for fleet excellence

The Building Operations Department at UBC has been awarded the first platinum rating from E3 Fleet, a national program that recognizes excellence in fleet management and environmental performance.

The Building Operations Department operates 240 vehicles and specialty motorized equipment in carrying out facilities maintenance, operations and renovation services for the lands and buildings owned by UBC. Between 2011 and 2013 the department cut greenhouse gas emissions in the fleet by 217 tonnes, or 25 per cent, and increased average fuel efficiency by 16 per cent.
