Northern Indiana Green Fleet Program

South Shore Clean Cities (SSCC) manages the Northern Indiana Green Fleet program for our local Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO's), Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) and Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC). The goal of the program is to significantly improve the environmental performance of business and government vehicle fleets across each respected MPO's terretory through diesel retrofits and other strategies. MACOG's territory covers Elkhart, Kosciusko, Marshall and St. Joseph Counties, while NIRPC's territory covers Lake, Porter, and La Porte Counties. South Shore Clean Cities will work with and guide these fleets to help mitigate barriers that prevent adopting alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles while creating policies that support petroleum and vehicle-emission reductions.

Becoming a Northern Indiana Green Fleet Provides:

  • Educational Opportunities including fuel and technology workshops, trainings and seminars
  • Recognition and Certification for fleet leaders who have taken steps to improve environmental performance and efficiency
  • Branding and Promotional Tools that help fleets leverage their earned certification status
  • Informational Resources including current technology options, market conditions, laws and incentives
  • Connections with Vendors offering alternative fuel vehicles, equipment, conversion systems, and more
  • Funding Assistance with grant opportunities and other state and federal incentive programs
  • Professional Consultation including fleet assessment and emissions quantification

Impacts Did you know?
Pollutants in diesel exhaust can be harmful to human health. Impacts of exposure include eye, nose and throat irritation, aggravated asthma and more serious conditions like heart and lung disease. Greening your fleet will reduce employee and passenger exposures to these pollutants.

What is an Air Quality Action Day for Ozone?
Your State or local air quality agency may declare an Air Quality Action Day for Ozone when ozone levels are forecast to reach unhealthy levels. On ozone action days, you can take simple steps to reduce the pollution that results in ground-level ozone. Read more
