City of Santa Monica Recognizes ECOLIMO

Posted on May 16, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

SANTA MONIA, CALIF. — ECOLIMO is a winner of the Sustainable Quality Award presented by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and the City of Santa Monica. The award recognizes voluntary activities that local businesses have undertaken that result in cleaner air and water, less waste, reduced traffic and pollution, improved quality of life for residents and workers, and a strong and viable local economy.

ECOLIMO was one of six grand prize winners. In presenting the award, the city said, “Its fleet of hybrid, CNG, and biodiesel-fueled vehicles deliver impeccable service for a fraction of the environmental toll of the competition. The entire ECOLIMO fleet’s CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) emissions are offset via TerraPass program. A traditional fleet of gasoline-powered cars would emit 138 metric tons of CO2 annually. By operating only hybrid and alternatively fueled vehicles, the company prevents 79 metric tons on CO2 from entering the atmosphere and contributing to global warming.”
