Washington Gas Awarded For Its Energy-Efficient Transportation Fleet

Washington Gas has been awarded the highest level of achievement in the CLEANFleet Certification (CFC) program, a national program developed by the Coalition for Green Fleet Management to certify private and public fleet operations as energy efficient and environmentally responsible. Washington Gas received a Tier 5 certification, the highest level of recognition. The company continues to identify clean and efficient energy solutions that produce value for customers, investors and communities.

“It’s not an easy task to accomplish,” said James Schwab from Fleet Counselor Services, the company conducting the certification. “Out of the 30 companies currently in the certification program, Washington Gas is the only one to have received the top level achievement. We were very impressed with their overall performance.”

The CFC program is the industry-recognized method to measure and reward high standards in clean fleet management. Categories in the Tier 5 level include General Waste Management and Recycling, Vehicle Replacement and Carbon Footprint, and Facility Management.

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Adrian P. Chapman, President and Chief Operating Officer for WGL Holdings, Inc. and Washington Gas. “We are proud of the advancements we have made in recent years to increase the number of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in our fleet. We remain steadfast in our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint across all of our operations, including our fleet.”

Washington Gas is targeting a 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from its fleet and facilities by 2020. This objective includes doubling its fleet of clean-burning natural gas vehicles to over 200. Natural gas vehicles, on average, have a 25% smaller carbon footprint than similar gasoline powered vehicles.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., WGL Holdings, Inc. has four operating segments: (i) the regulated utility segment, which primarily consists of Washington Gas Light Company, a natural gas utility that serves over one million customers throughout metropolitan Washington, D.C., and the surrounding region; (ii) the retail energy-marketing segment which consists of Washington Gas Energy Services, Inc., a third-party marketer that competitively sells natural gas and electricity; (iii) the commercial energy systems segment, which consists of Washington Gas Energy Systems, Inc., a provider of energy efficiency solutions to government and commercial clients and (iv) the wholesale energy solutions segment, which consists of Capitol Energy Ventures Corp., a non-utility asset optimization business.
