A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:
Besides complying with EPAct, UC Berkeley requires the acquisition of Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFV) wherever operationally and financially feasible.
UC Sustainable Practices Policy calls for the fleet to be carbon neutrality by 2025. The UC Berkeley 2020 Sustainability Plan outlines additional measures to advance a sustainable carbon-free fleet. Some of these strategies include:
• All replacement, lease, and new fleet vehicle requests (including low speed neighborhood vehicles, non-licensed carts, and shuttles) will be required to evaluate zero-emission, sustainable fueled, non-diesel, and/or high efficiency vehicle options and when available
procure or lease these options.
• Incentivize use of alternative sustainable transportation options such as bike share for university business needs.
• To meet the 2025 carbon neutrality goal, carbon offsets will be acquired until such time the fleet is transitioned to carbon-free.

Additional documentation to support the submission:
More than 35% of the campus fleet is considered green including our flex-fuel gasoline/E85 vehicles (not included above). The campus owns several vehicles that are partial zero-emission vehicles (option not included above). Additionally, electric carts are used on campus but are not considered part of the fleet if they do not require street legal licensing.
The information in this field was provided by the campus Fleet Services coordinator for the year 2020.
