In its continuous mission to raise awareness on the importance of fuel efficient and safe driving, the Honda Foundation Inc. (HFI) recently hosted a fuel economy workshop for its fleet operators from different government and private sectors. The whole day eco-safety driving training, held at the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC) in Parañaque City, was focused to collectively address the pressing issues on air pollution, climate change, and energy sustainability. Its 16 representatives came from the Office of the President (OP), Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC), Land Transportation Office (LTO), Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Maynilad, Manila Water, and Globe Telecom.
“Faced with finite fuel resources, high fuel prices and worsening air quality, we must put our efforts together and act immediately before it’s too late,” said Mr. Voltaire Gonzales, HCPI’s Head of Vehicle Sales and Corporate Communications. “For fifteen years now, we have been teaching safe and fuel efficient driving techniques under normal conditions. With the simple formula: DRIVER + VEHICLE + FUEL = FUEL ECONOMY, application of correct driving style, use of a well-maintained vehicle that is designed with fuel saving technology and use of high quality fuel can easily extend one’s fuel mileage and reduce harmful emissions,” he added.
