When you're doing what's right, you get noticed. Doing the right thing isn't always easy. That's why we wanted to make sure we recognized fleets that went the extra mile to reduce petroleum and improve the air all North Texans breathe.

How Does My Fleet Get Recognized?
Each fleet can earn up to 100 points, based on information reported in the annual survey and knowledge that Coalition staff have of fleet activities/initiatives. See the table below our scoring committee used to determine fleet scores.
2023 Award Levels:
Gold: 50 - 100
Silver: 40 - 49
Bronze: 30 - 39
Shining Star Awards are given to fleets who demonstrate the greatest progress in specific areas that Coalition staff would like to recognize. Shining Stars are awarded based upon information reported in the annual survey. Each category has multiple winners. Winners are selected based on either the greatest total progress or percentage improvement from the previous year.
To be recognized, fleets must complete the annual survey and have adopted the Clean Fleet Policy. Recognized fleets typically excel in multiple fleet efficiency areas surveyed. One of the easiest places to lose points is to simply forgo answering certain questions and leaving sections blank when completing the annual survey.
Recognized fleets receive an award, stickers for their vehicles, electronic versions of sticker graphics for the web, and a paper weight (gold only). Fleets recognized for "A Decade of Annual Reporting" receive a wooden plaque.
Fleet Challenge Awards are given to fleets who met or exceeded quantifiable goals set for themselves in the previous year’s annual survey. Self-imposed fleet goals may include measures such as reducing fuel consumption, improving fuel economy, increasing number of alternative fuel vehicles, or increasing overall alternative fuel volume.
Congratulations to the 2023 Fleet Recognition Award Winners!
