Future Fleet

America's biggest companies are also the oil industry’s biggest customers. Future Fleet is a Sierra Club and ForestEthics joint campaign to slash oil use and eliminate tar sands fuel from America's corporate vehicle fleets.

Some corporations have already stopped using oil from refineries that process tar sands, the dirtiest source of oil on earth. Some companies are already shifting to cleaner vehicles, shipping practices, and clean employee commuting programs. Now, all companies need to do much more.

Currently, the Future Fleet campaign is asking Pepsi to reduce their oil use and stop using tar sands to fuel its massive vehicle fleet. As a major company, PepsiCo has a responsibility to protect water and our climate. But PepsiCo also operates the largest private vehicle fleet in the United States -- and is a major consumer of oil -- so it also has a unique responsibility to show leadership on rejecting the most extreme sources of oil, like tar sands.

As if the climate damage from tar sands wasn't enough, toxic waste from tar sands mining contains ammonia, cyanide, arsenic and other known carcinogens, which are then dumped into massive leaky "lakes" of poisonous wastewater. As a result, cancer rates are rising in local indigenous communities. Check out our factsheet »
