The commercial and government fleet members of the Chicago Area Clean Cities saved more than 25 million gallons of petroleum in 2014, which reduced fuel consumption and improved air quality, according to the group.
The coalition's member fleets saved more than 25 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) of petroleum and nearly 240,000 tons of greenhouse-gas emissions during the year.
Members include Ozinga Bros, Inc., the City of Chicago, Village of Downers Grove, the City of Naperville, GO Airport Express, Nicor Gas, and Waste Management.
