Sustainability Funds Awarded to TTM for University Alternative Fuel Fleet Vehicle Purchases

In support of the university’s operational excellence and resource stewardship sustainability goals and strategic plan, departments may apply for up to $10,000 toward the incremental cost of a new electric vehicle (EV) and up to $20,000 toward the incremental cost of a new compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle. This funding is made available through a $500,000 President and Provost’s Council on Sustainability Ohio State Sustainability Fund, and will be distributed to departments by Transportation and Traffic Management. We encourage university departments to purchase alternative fuel fleet vehicles, and this new opportunity demonstrates Ohio State and TTM’s commitment to advance sustainability across campus through efforts to reduce the university’s carbon footprint by 25% by 2025.
