For two days in October, Schaumburg, Ill., was among the greenest places in the country. The reason: the 2012 Green Fleet Conference & Expo, which was held Oct. 2 and 3. The event was co-located with NGVAmerica’s 2012 NGV Conference & Summit.

The event, which was produced by Bobit Business Media, the publisher of Green Fleet magazine, attracted almost 1,000 fleet professionals — some with long experience in sustainable fleet practice who were looking to hone their knowledge, and some who were putting their toes into the sustainable waters for the first time.

Among the highlights were keynote addresses by John Davis, host of television’s MotorWeek; Johanna Wellington from GE Global Research; Mitch Jackson of FedEx; and Dave Hurst of Pike Research, a part of Navigant. In addition, this year’s Sustainability All-Stars were announced, and attendees had a chance to try out the latest green vehicles during a ride-and-drive event. Educational opportunities and the chance to meet with representatives of all aspects of the industry in the exhibit hall rounded out the sustainable picture for attendees. The sixth annual Green Fleet Conference will be held in Phoenix Oct. 1-2, 2013.
