Riverside has been recognized for having the top fleet of green vehicles in North America by the NAFA Fleet Management Association.
“Riverside has made ‘going green’ a part of our city’s identity, and the green fleet award is the latest recognition of those efforts,” Mayor Patricia Lock Dawson said in a statement. “Finishing first among a large field of competitors is a testament to our commitment in this area.”
The annual Green Fleet Awards were announced during the recent Sustainable Fleet Technology Conference and Expo in Durham, N.C. Other Top 100 finishes include Long Beach (#2) Portland, Oregon (#20), San Diego (#25), New York City (#26), Atlanta, (#33) and Edmonton, Canada (# 45).
The Green Fleet Awards emphasize cities’ commitment to the use of alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles, fuel usage, and savings, purchasing policy, and long-range planning.
Riverside’s goal have its fleet of vehicles carbon-neutral by 2040.
