The City of Dublin, Ohio has obtained Tier 5 CLEANFleet certification from the Coalition for Green Fleet Management. This, in addition to the City’s Certified Fleet Management Operation (CFMO) designation, makes Dublin a Master Certified Fleet operation.
Dublin is one of only eight fleets in the United States, and the only one in Ohio, to achieve the Master Certified Fleet certification.
“Attaining such certifications requires hard work, dedication, and teamwork,” says James Wright, President and CEO of Fleet Counselor Services, Inc. “Congratulations to Dublin Fleet Management.”
Darryl Syler, Fleet Manager for the City says this has been a total team effort. “The staff at Fleet has gone to great lengths to ensure we achieved these standards. We have the support of Senior Leadership and City Council, and the City is fully committed to continued efforts that enhance Dublin’s standing as a green and sustainable place to work and live.”
The CFC is comprehensive, as the strict standards require everyone involved in the operation, including senior management and/or elected officials, to support best practices and the responsible use of the funds needed to attain high standards.
The program is structured in five progressive steps, known as tiers, allowing fleet operations to be recognized for their accomplishments. Each tier requires progressively more involved standards for certification. The top tier, Tier 5, is designed for highly-advanced fleet operations. All tiers are valid for one year before requiring a re-certification.
Certification categories include:
Hazardous Waste Generator Identification
General Waste Management Requirements Waste Storage
Recycled Oil Products and Used Oil Management Program
Vehicle and Equipment Washing Facilities
Facility Air Quality
Contract Repair Work (outside services)
Administration and General Management, including Purchasing Policies
Vehicle Replacement and Carbon Footprint
While the certification program recognizes fleet operations for their current accomplishments, it also clearly identifies a pathway for those operations looking to improve their current processes.
The City of Dublin will be awarded for both the CLEANFleet certification and its Fleet Masters operation designation at the Government Fleet Expo & Conference (GFX) in June.
