Ozinga was selected as a runner up in the South Shore Clean Cities 2017 Member of the Year Award for our efforts in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and gasoline gallon equivalents.
Collectively, South Shore Clean Cities members displaced 16.8 million gasoline gallon equivalents and more than 108,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions in 2016, the year for which awards were presented. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, their actions represent the greenhouse gas reduction equivalent of taking more than 32,000 passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
South Shore Clean Cities manages the Green Fleet programs for two Northern Indiana metropolitan planning organizations, the Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) and the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC). The goal of the program is to significantly improve the environmental performance of government fleets by implementing sustainable transportation strategies.
The annual meeting and awards ceremony took place at the Blue Chip Hotel and Spa in Michigan City, Indiana.
