Think Sustainability — Could alternate fuels save billions?
The American Clean Skies foundation is out with their new plan that aims to reduce the government’s consumption of oil – and the fiscal and environmental costs that come with it – by requiring federal agencies to apply to third-‐party transportation providers the same kind of alternative fuel targets, efficiency standards and reporting practices that agencies currently apply to their own vehicle fleets. They unveiled their plan at GovLoop’s Next Generation of Government Training Summit last week. Warren Lavey is the Regulatory Council and Gregory Staple is the CEO at the American Clean Skies Foundation. Lavey and Staple estimate that implementation of this plan could deliver approximately $70 billion in cost savings alone by 2025; reduce petroleum consumption by billions of gallons each year; stimulate the introduction of tens of thousands of new alternatively fueled vehicles; and cut greenhouse gas pollution by over 20 million metric tons annually. Staple told Chris Dorobek on the DorobekINSIDER program just how much federal funding is spent on oil right now. You can also check out our Think Sustainability Panel at NextGen.
