City of San Leandro in California switches its municipal vehicles to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel
“This was one easy change that we could make ourselves”, said Debbie Pollart, public works manager for the City of San Leandro. “Municipal operations need to be the leader in shifting the mindset of residents and businesses that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a worthy effort that involves everyone.”
San Leandro operates approximately 160 vehicles. The city decided to make the switch as part of the city’s Climate Action Plan, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% below 2005 levels by the year 2020.
