Washington Gas was proud to receive a Fleet Leadership Award for its Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) from the Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition (GWRCCC) on September 25, during GWRCC’s 25th anniversary awards luncheon. On hand to accept the award were Alex-Miller Brown from the Sustainability team and Michele L. Davis from the Fleet Management team.
Washington Gas has 287 NGVs in its fleet, which equates to 38% of its current fleet.
By adding Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and bi-fuel CNG vehicles to the fleet - and by taking active measures to manage fleet emissions - Washington Gas has significantly reduced the annual per vehicle emissions intensity for its fleet.
The GWRCCC works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders and other stakeholders to reduce petroleum use in transportation. Nine other companies were recognized with awards in categories ranging from visionary to service and for owning various types of fleets.
