The Green Transportation Summit & Expo is accepting nominations for its first-ever Sustainable Fleet Awards. These awards recognize fleets that are going above and beyond business–as–usual to operate sustainably.
Eligibility Requirements: Any size fleet, light, medium, or heavy duty, conducting at least 70% of their operations within the Western Region is eligible. The Western Region includes; California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Hawaii, Wyoming, Colorado and British Columbia, Canada.
Fleets will be evaluated on the extent to which their planning, management and ongoing operations:
- Conserve fuel
- Promote efficiencies
- Integrate alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles
- Minimize environmental impacts, such as air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, toxic spills, etc., especially in communities historically disproportionately impacted by environmental harms
- Improve fleet performance over time
These efforts are not quick or easy, but take dedication, thoughtful leadership and a willingness to explore new technologies.
The First Annual Western Region Sustainable Fleet Awards are sponsored by the Columbia-Willamette, Rogue Valley, Western Washington, East Bay, Treasure Valley, Denver Metro, Southern Colorado, Utah and Northern Colorado Clean Cities Coalitions. The Clean Cities program advances the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to cut petroleum use in transportation. Clean Cities has saved more than 7.5 billion gallons of petroleum since its inception in 1993.
