Going Green Makes Sense
For the fleet at ThyssenKrupp Elevator, propane power is the smart choice. In 2010, the Atlanta-based company’s fleet department started exploring ways to combat rising fuel costs. The result was the development of a protocol for analyzing alternative fuel vehicles, one that can serve as a model for other companies.
“We are challenged in today’s marketplace to go green,” said Tom Armstrong, ThyssenKrupp Elevator’s director of fleet, “We were determined to reduce our fuel consumption and find sustainable vehicles that work for us. With all the alternative fuel choices available today, we needed a tool to effectively justify each fuel or alternative fuel vehicle type.”
