The Southern Colorado Clean Cities Coalition (SC4) is a neutral consult for organizations wanting to learn more about alternative fuels and petroleum reduction strategies for their vehicle fleets. Since 1994, the SC4 has been working locally to displace petroleum in the transportation sector in order to increase our energy security, support our domestic economy, and improve air quality for the benefit of public health and the environment. The SC4 highlights the connection between vehicle emissions and public health:

Clean Cities Annual Petroleum Displacement Report!
Each year Southern Colorado Clean Cities collects data from stakeholders and produces a coalition report for the U.S. Department of Energy. This report reflects all of the great work Southern Colorado has accomplished to reduce petroleum consumption and increase our use of alternative fuels. It also provides opportunities for funding alternative fuel projects and helps promote our coalition and our great state! By doing so, you’ll not only help us track all of the great things happening in Southern Colorado, but you will also show how much YOU have done to decrease your carbon footprint. Simply fill out any alternative fuels used, miles reduced, or any efforts in our 2016 in this spreadsheet! Download here! – clean-cities_stakeholder-annual-report-template_2016
Please fill out the spreadsheet and email it back to Klisek@lungs.org before March 10th. Thank you so much for your help, please let us know if you have any questions!
