Clean Fleets of Greater Indiana

Clean Fleets of Greater Indiana

Clean Fleets of Greater Indiana aims to improve the environmental performance of vehicle fleets across the state of Indiana. Clean Fleets of Indiana is a voluntary recognition program of the Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition (GICCC).

The program is structured to provide flexibility for diverse fleets across the state to pursue best practices while achieving recognition for successes along the way. Participating fleet managers complete an online survey once per year to submit quantitative data and descriptions of fleet activities.
