PRINCETON, N.J. – In response to global warming concerns, pollution, and oil dependence, the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) will debut a new pavilion in the exhibit hall at the 50th Annual FMI-LEG Conference & Expo, to be held May 6-7, 2007, in Houston. The pavilion will be called The Green Zone. Located near the center of the exhibit hall, The Green Zone will feature the latest technology for clean diesel, alternative/renewable fuels, hybrid cars and trucks, electric cars, and other advanced technology designed for a cleaner, more environmentally friendly fleet. In 2005, Bill White, mayor of the FMI-LEG host city, Houston, announced plans to convert a substantial portion of the city’s more than 3,500 fleet of cars, trucks, and SUVs to hybrids by 2010. Since transportation is a major source of pollution, NAFA wants to help its members incorporate clean diesel, E-85, gas-electric hybrid, and alternative-fuel vehicles and technology into their fleets. There will also be a hybrid Ride-and-Drive event for those vehicles held in conjunction with The Green Zone exhibits. For those interested in being part of The Green Zone, call (847) 698-5069, or e-mail
