Fife ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme

• ECO Stars is a free scheme, commissioned by Fife Council to encourage fleet operators – of all sizes - to improve efficiency, reduce fuel consumption and emissions – to help improve local transport related air quality.

• When joining, members have their vehicles and overall fleet rated by industry experts to assess their current performance – both operational and environmental – and achieve an ECO Stars rating between 1 and 5. A bespoke “road map” is then produced containing tailor-made guidance to help improve the efficiency of their fleet.
