The Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition named the winners for the Green Fleet Leadership Awards for 2017, honoring companies and government agencies who operate in the Chicagoland area that are leading in the adoption of alternative fuels and clean-vehicle technologies for their fleets.

Winners for this year include commercial and government fleets, according to a release from Chicago Area Clean Cities. The winners for this year were FedEx Express, Commonwealth Edison Company, City of Chicago, City of Elmhurst, Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, Waste Management, Peapod, Continental Air Transport, Chicago Transit Authority, Coca-Cola, and Watts on Wheels.

The awards are given annually to commercial or government fleets that take actions to locally reduce petroleum consumption and improve air quality, such as by using cleaner-burning alternative-fuel vehicles, electric vehicles or other advanced technologies.

“The fleets we’re recognizing range from using compressed natural gas to propane to plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles, all with the goals of saving fuel, reducing emissions and saving money,” said John W. Walton, chair of Chicago Area Clean Cities.

The Green Fleet Leadership Award winners were named at the coalition’s end of the year meeting.
