CITY Furniture was named the #1 Green Fleet in America during the Green Fleet Awards 2021 presented by NAFA Fleet Management Association. Jumping an impressive 23 spots from #24 in 2020, CITY Furniture’s ongoing green initiatives helped to secure a tie for first place with the City and County of Denver in the #1 position. 
 
Dave Clevenger, VP Operations, Fleet/DC Maintenance at CITY Furniture, outlined the impactful improvements that the team has implemented over the last year to improve efficiency and reduce their environmental impact. 
 
Over the last year, CITY Furniture has: 

  • Reduced the amount of vehicles within the fleet that did not run on alternative fuels. 
     
  • Opened and commenced construction on brand new compressed natural Gas (CNG) stations at all of their Distribution Centers across the state of Florida. 
     
  • Improved Fleet Maintenance across the board with a best in class readiness rate of 97%.
     
  • Collaborated with Peterbilt, an environmental innovator, to develop a dedicated CNG fueled Medium Duty Delivery Truck. 
     

These ongoing improvements within the CITY Furniture fleet all contribute to the company’s 2040 Green Promise, a pledge to be carbon neutral in their showrooms, warehouses, and corporate offices by 2040. 
 
President of CITY Furniture, Andrew Koenig adds, “We all join in celebrating the accomplishments of our fleet team. Seeing the results of our ongoing efforts to be a cleaner, greener company is extremely rewarding, and we’re just getting started.”
