Green Fleet Plan


A report update on Oxford County’s Green Fleet Plan shows the County cut fleet greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 9.3% between 2014 and 2019 (226 tonnes CO2e). With Council approval of the proposed 2021-2025 Green Fleet Plan, the County will be well positioned to surpass its 2025 target to reduce GHG emissions by 14.1% over 2015 base year levels. Key projects undertaken so far to reduce the carbon footprint of fleet operations include introducing a corporate fleet anti-idling policy, fleet rationalization, and replacing gas-powered County vehicles with “green” vehicles run by alternative fuels/electric power. The Green Fleet Plan is part of the ongoing implementation of the County’s 100% Renewable Energy (RE) Plan.
