Recognized for environmental stewardship in the Fleet Industry

HOOKSETT, N.H., May 16, 2023 – Merchants Fleet, the nation’s fastest growing fleet management company, today announced it has won the 2023 SEAL Environmental Initiative Award for its revolutionary Electrify Fleet program.

“Merchants was one of the first fleet management companies in North America to make a bold commitment to fleet electrification, and it has been extremely rewarding to see our Electrify Fleet program help our clients put their sustainability goals into action,” said Hari Nayar, VP of Electrification at Merchants. “Transitioning to zero direct tailpipe emissions for ground transport is a monumental evolution for the entire transportation sector— and we are proud to be leading the way with deployable vehicle, infrastructure & energy solutions to drive that change forward.”

Merchants’ Electrify Fleet initiative is the first of its kind to provide fleet clients with a comprehensive end-to-end solution which includes everything from deployment strategy and vehicle acquisition to infrastructure planning and identifying grants and incentives, as well as a centralized web-based hub where clients can access the tools and resources they need to take educated steps toward electrifying their fleets.

Millions of miles were driven by Merchants’ EV fleets in 2022, and Merchants continues to help drive fleet electrification in North America with $2.5B committed toward having 50% of clients’ fleets electric by 2030.

“Granularity was the theme of the 2023 sustainability awards. Across all industries and geographies, companies are going deep and granular – into materials, chemistry, processes, R&D, and more – to generate sustainability improvements,” commented Matt Harney, Chairperson and Founder of SEAL Awards. “Corporate ESG leadership – like our 2023 honorees have demonstrated – is absolutely needed to address our climate crisis.”

The award puts Merchants in good company, alongside fellow honorees including well-recognized brands such as Disney, GE, Honeywell, Mastercard, Under Armour, Samsung, and high-growth start-ups such as Flowspace and PATH—all of whom have been honored for their leadership, innovation, and commitment to sustainability initiatives.
