GFX 2013: Eugene Water & Electric Board Becomes CLEANFleet Certified

June 12, 2013

Eugene Water & Electric Board (EWEB) in Oregon has achieved Tier 5 CLEANFleet Certification (CFC) from the Coalition for Green Fleet Management (CGFM). Gary Lentsch, fleet services supervisor, accepted a crystal award at GFX on June 12 on behalf of the utility.

To obtain the Tier 5 Certification, a staff of 10 from EWEB’s facility, safety, environmental, and fleet departments incorporated the following into their fleet practices: green fleet sustainability database, sustainable purchasing policy, fleet sustainability business plan, an annual training, and vendor accountability. 

“Reaching Tier 5 CFC is a way to benchmark what we have already accomplished in our efforts to increase our sustainability for all of our fleet business activities. It’s a way to gain outside recognition for the green fleet initiatives we have launched throughout the last few years,” Lentsch said.

EWEB is housed in a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-Certified fleet services facility, which is 45% more energy-efficient than the State’s energy codes require. EWEB has had a green preventive maintenance program in place since 2011.

Fleet Counselor Services (FCS) administered the certification, providing on-site consulting, testing, and validation.
