A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

Decreasing fuel consumption helped the University of Illinois earn accreditation as a sustainable fleet by the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA). Earning the accreditation shows that F&S is taking a proactive approach to managing its vehicles and protecting the environment. Maintaining a sustainable fleet is something F&S does to help reach target goals in the Urbana campus Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP). Among the 10 criteria evaluated were percentage of alternative fuel used, percentage of advanced technology vehicles in the fleet, idle reduction, greenhouse gas emissions, and having a sustainable fleet plan. The first college/university in the state and Big Ten Conference to earn NAFA sustainability accreditation, F&S earned a Tier 2 (out of 4) level of achievement and hopes to expand its efforts in the future. As a part of Illinois’ commitment to promoting sustainable habits and being a leader within our community, the University of Illinois System joined Smartway as of 2020, becoming the first higher education system to join this program as an affiliate. The university is committed to improving its green footprint in all areas to include transportation, supply chain, and logistics.
