The Green Fleet Award program recognizes governmental based fleet operations that demonstrate sustainable practices in fleet composition, fuel and emissions, policy and planning, fleet utilization, education of the community, and executive and employee involvement.  In 2015, EWEB ranked 10th, its highest ranking ever.

EWEB has long been a leader in the use of alternative fuels as it has been recognized with several sustainable awards throughout the years for its efforts.  Earlier this year, EWEB's Fleet Services was named as the top sustainable fleet in the nation through NAFA's Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program.

EWEB's fleet Services is proud to be a leader in promoting the use of environmentally friendly programs in all aspects of its daily operations.

"For our utility to be selected as one of the best from a national applicant pool is certainly an honor and demonstrates our community's exemplary commitment to eco-friendly and sustainable practices says," Gary Lentsch, Fleet Supervisor.

We're committed to using greener fuels like Renewable Diesel  to improve the environment and create economic opportunities for our community.  Today over 57% of the fuel used by our fleet operations are from some type of alternative fuel.  By using alternative fuels, we have be able to lower the carbon intensity of the fuels used in our fleet by over 34% (based off of our 2009 levels).
