The Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition honored five companies at its Green Fleet award ceremony for leading in the adoption of alternative fuels and clean-vehicle technologies for their fleets.

The winners of the coalition’s top five green fleets for 2016 include Alpha Baking Company, R&D Bus Company, Starfish Transportation of Chicago, Gold Standard Transportation of Crestwood, Ill., and DuPage County.

Green Fleet award winners were named at the coalition’s end of the year meeting, which are given annually to commercial or government fleets that take actions to reduce petroleum consumption and improve air quality.

“The fleets we’re recognizing range from using CNG to propane to electric vehicles, all with the goals of saving fuel, reducing emissions and saving money,” said John Walton, vice chairman of Chicago Area Clean Cities. “Alpha Baking, Starfish Transportation, Gold Standard Transportation, R&D Bus Company and DuPage County are terrific examples for others to follow and learn about the advantages of clean-vehicle technologies.”
