Chesterfield County’s Fleet Management Division has earned the Virginia Environmental Excellence Program award from the Department of Environmental Quality with support from the Environmental Protection Agency. The award is given to those organizations that demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship. Fleet Management has now reached the E4 level, the highest level of Extraordinary Environmental Enterprise that can be earned, for demonstrating a mature Environmental Management System, having aggressive environmental performance goals, a process of engaging the local community and continued progress toward performance goals. Chesterfield County Fleet Management is the only fleet facility in Virginia to hold the E4 status.
Fleet Management also earned recognition for addressing the environmental impacts of their products, services and activities. The ISO 14001:2004 certification was given to Fleet Management by a third-party certification agency that monitored Fleet’s operational control of universal and hazardous waste storage and the disposal of batteries, mercury, aerosol cans, paint, oily rags, used oil filters and the containment of oily water.
