Founded in 1993 the Clean Cities Coalition is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nationally coordinated and locally focused environmental initiative to encourage local decision-making to reduce petroleum consumption and promote alternative transportation. The main goal of the Clean Cities Coalition is to reduce petroleum consumption in the United States by 2.5 billion gallons each year until the year 2020. 

Throughout the United States, more than 8,400 stakeholders participate with 100 Clean Cities Coalitions, which includes the Western New York Area (Niagara, Erie, Cattaraugus, Alleghany and Chautauqua Counties). Clean Communities of Western New York was established as a Clean Cities coalition in 1994, and incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit in 2000. In WNY, our dynamic group of Clean Cities Coalition stakeholders represent dedicated businesses, local government agencies, community-based organizations, as well as state and federal agencies contributing to the reduction of petroleum consumption in our area for over 25 years. CCWNY is committed to partnering with fleet operators, providing education on the benefits of alternative fuels and the positive effect to our environment as well as reducing fleet operating expenses.​​​

Clean Cities Coalitions foster the economic, environmental, and energy security of the United States by working locally to advance affordable, domestic transportation fuels, energy efficient mobility systems, and other fuel-saving technologies and practices.
