Green Fleets Initiative

Saving Money, Reducing Pollution, and Protecting the Climate

In local governments everywhere streets are swept, neighborhoods patrolled and important business conducted every day with vehicles owned by local governments. Maintaining a vehicle fleet is a key component of local governments’ operations. Operating a fleet of vehicles comes at a price, however beyond the monetary cost, fleet vehicles represent a significant source of air pollution. Also, every gallon of gasoline or diesel fuel burned releases about 22 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2), the major pollutant causing global warming.
