NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA) announced a collaboration with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Cities Coalition Network.
This marks a step towards promoting sustainable fleet practices and expanding NAFA’s membership base, based on the organization’s news release.
“The collaboration between NAFA and the Clean Cities Coalition is a big milestone in our shared mission to advertise sustainability in fleet management,” said Bill Schankel, CAE, CEO of NAFA. “We’re wanting to welcome the brand new coalition members into our community and work together to drive positive change in our industry.”
NAFA Membership Program
On the 2023 Clean Cities National Training Workshop, NAFA presented some great benefits of its membership program to 75 Clean Cities Coalitions, staff from national laboratories and the DOE, and invited guests from other federal and native agencies.
In consequence of this effort, 54 Coalitions selected to hitch NAFA, constituting 72% of all participating coalitions.
“Our collaboration with NAFA is a pivotal moment in our mission for sustainable fleet practices,” said Mark Smith, Technology Integration Program Manager at DOE’s Technology Integration Program. “These coalitions work in urban, suburban, and rural communities throughout America helping businesses and consumers meet climate, financial, and energy goals through sustainable transportation fuels and technologies. Together, we’re driving the industry toward a greener and more efficient future.”
NAFA will host a kickoff webinar in early November to initiate discussions on collaboration opportunities between the Clean Cities Coalitions and NAFA’s regions. The agenda will include brainstorming sessions on potential educational programming and the event of a joint message directed towards fleets not currently related to NAFA inside their respective areas.
NAFA said it will proceed to have interaction with leadership on the DOE and national laboratories to discover further collaborative opportunities for programming and informational publications.
