Airport Receives Green Fleet Award
Green Fleets is an alternative transportation consulting service of Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities. Green Fleets strives to improve the environmental and economic performance of partner organizations through alternative vehicles, fuels, technologies and strategies.
Current fleet data is analyzed to quantify baseline petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions and cost. After fleet goals and objectives are established, recommendations are calculated then compiled into a comprehensive report. The Jackson Hole Airport received the Green Fleet award in October for using plug-in hybrid electric vehicles instead of gas sedans, replacing conventional diesel with biodiesel and implementing an anti-idling policy. These initiatives will eliminate 2 Tons of greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the Airport’s use of petroleum by 1,515 gallons.
Paul Walters represented the Jackson Hole Airport for an award presentation at the October 25th, Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities Board and Stakeholder Meeting in Idaho Falls.
