GHG Reduction & Alternative Fuels For Fleets
Join us for a FREE Webinar on January 20
Hosted By: The Western Sustainability and Pollution Prevention Network (WSPPN)
Chris Wiley, City of Seattle, Green Fleets Coordinator
Kevin Dick, Nevada Business Environmental Program, Director
Description: There are two presentations in this webinar:
Presentation 1: When the City of Seattle adopted its Environmental Management Program in 1999, one of the key policy commitments was to “achieve an overall reduction in air emissions produced by City vehicles and to reduce the amount of fossil fuels purchased and used for vehicles.” Since that time, the City has made steady progress in “greening” the fleet. The City of Seattle is now recognized locally and nationally for its leadership in testing, implementing, and supporting more environmentally responsible fleet management policies and actions. This presentation will provide an overview of what the City has done to reduce emissions through use of more fuel efficient vehicles, alternative fuels, and its goals and plans for the future.
Presentation 2: During the past year WSPPN has worked with the Rocky Mountain Fleet Management Association to design and develop a website resource featuring best practices information for fleet managers. An overview of the website and types of best practice information related to GHG reductions through operations, vehicles, alternative fuels, fueling infrastructure, training and calculator tools will be provided. Information available through the site can benefit small operators such as a florist or cleaner with a few vehicles or a large business or government fleet with thousands of vehicles.
