ATLANTA — FleetCor, a global business payments firm, and GreenPrint, an environmental technology company, are launching the Fuelman Clean Advantage Fleet Card, the first U.S. card that automatically offsets 100% of tailpipe emissions from every gallon of fuel purchased.
The new Fuelman Clean Advantage Fleet Card’s fundamental feature is automatic carbon offsetting on every gallon purchased. Whenever a cardholder fills their tank, FleetCor and GreenPrint offset emissions through investments in independently certified carbon projects. Additionally, the Clean Advantage program and the Arbor Day Foundation will support the planting of 10,000 trees.
“By working with business owners on this initiative, FleetCor will play a role in combating climate change, while also helping small and medium-sized businesses reach environmentally-conscious customers,” said Keagan Russo, senior vice president of Fuelman. “We’re seeing more businesses start to build and implement better sustainability practices, and this launch with GreenPrint further emphasizes FleetCor’s efforts to do our part.”
The new Fuelman Clean Advantage Card offers a suite of core fuel card features including customizable card controls and alerts, online account management, fuel and tax reporting and around-the-clock roadside assistance. Cardholders will also have access to annual independently audited carbon offset reporting and related sustainability marketing materials.
“Countless research shows most consumers would switch to brands supporting a good cause, so now is the time for fleet owners to embrace carbon neutrality,” said Pete Davis, CEO of GreenPrint.
In other company news, GreenPrint has also launched a carbon neutral program with the Dublin, Ireland-based Maxol Group. The program aims to support a number of green initiatives both in Ireland and globally, including the planting of 10,000 trees across Ireland, local community projects and global projects designed to offset carbon emissions, including fuel emissions.
