Clean Fleet Initiative

In 2016 the Department of Public Works (DPW) began a Clean Fleet initiative that supports the City’s Net Zero aspirations and 2050 carbon neutrality goals. Working with the U.S. Dept. of Transportation’s Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe), the City will develop strategies to increase fuel efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) emissions of the municipal fleet and to develop a 2030 fleet GHG emissions reduction target.

The work is being performed in alignment with the City’s ongoing sustainability initiatives, including the Net Zero Action Plan for the built environment, citywide GHG emission reductions, decarbonization of the fuel supply and climate change resiliency programs.
