Nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions work to reduce petroleum use in communities across the country. Led by Clean Cities coordinators, coalitions are composed of businesses, fuel providers, vehicle fleets, state and local government agencies, and community organizations. These stakeholders come together to share information and resources, educate the public, help craft public policy, and collaborate on projects that reduce petroleum use.

Making an Impact

More than 228 million people (74% of the total U.S. population) live inside the boundaries of Clean Cities coalitions. Coalitions coordinate the work of almost 18,000 stakeholders nationwide.

Clean Cities coalitions make an impact in their communities every day. Their activities stimulate local economies, facilitate the adoption of new transportation technologies, and make communities cleaner, healthier places to live.

"I credit East Bay Clean Cities for providing me a starting place. With their influence, I was able to bring back to the city information about hybrid technology. We looked at all the possibilities for our solid waste collection vehicles and settled on a regenerative braking system. Thanks for your help."
