City of Hamilton: Silver-Rated Fleet (2007)
"The Public Works Department is extremely pleased to receive this award. We take our environmental responsibility very seriously and we hope that we can inspire other municipalities to transition their fleet to greener alternatives as well."
— Scott Stewart, General Manager of the City of Hamilton's Public Works Department (2007)

In May 2007 the City of Hamilton’s Public Works Department earned the first-ever E3 Fleet Rating.
Between 2005 and 2006, City of Hamilton fleets increased fuel efficiency by 5% for every kilometre travelled, and decreased greenhouse emissions by 2% per kilometre. The City’s Silver Rating was based on these accomplishments and best management practices, including:
“The City of Hamilton can be proud of its fleets,” said Chair Charles Jago for the Fraser Basin Council in announcing the award. “They have been quick out of the gate to meet E3 Fleet criteria and capture a Silver Rating. It’s an impressive accomplishment, and we expect other public and private sector fleets to step up to the challenge.”
In 2009 the City of Hamilton also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Fleet Challenge Ontario. The City was praised for having adopted one of the first-ever green fleet plans, which served as a model for others, and for promoting new technologies – an example being “Green Fleet Expo,” launched in partnership with the City of Toronto.
