ServiceMaster Fleet Practices Sound And Responsible Environmental Stewardship


At ServiceMaster, it is our responsibility to do our best every day to practice and promote sound and responsible environmental stewardship. In every great brand and functional group of our company, associates on every level are working to find ways to put that responsibility to work – whether it is with a customer, a partner, in the community or with a colleague.

Last year we showcased many of our company's initiatives and how they were implemented. This year those initiatives continue with great success. But we haven’t stopped looking to implement more great initiatives to increase our environmental stewardship.

Below are updates on what’s new and still meeting with success in our ServiceMaster Fleet.

ServiceMaster, which has one of the largest private fleets in the country, will add 10 hybrid vehicles to its TruGreen fleet in California. The first truck was put into service March 17. A hybrid vehicle combines a conventional internal combustion engine propulsion system with an electric propulsion system. The presence of the electric power train is intended to achieve better fuel economy than a conventional vehicle, or better performance.

It is expected that using hybrid vehicles will help ServiceMaster reduce its carbon footprint by improving fuel economy by up to 40 percent, providing a 30 percent reduction in maintenance costs and up to 30 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
