NYC Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg joined Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) executives to announce that the company is undertaking energy saving measures here in New York, including introducing the first five hybrid-electric delivery trucks, which will operate out of the company's distribution center in the Bronx.
"Sustainable business practices will save businesses and government money in the long run,” said Mayor Bloomberg. "Although clearly a major international brand, there are important local implications resulting from this decision."
In June, Mayor Bloomberg joined officials from Hertz Rental Cars to announce that they would convert a major portion of their New York based fleet to hybrid.
In May, Mayor Bloomberg announced that the City's yellow-taxi fleet would be required to meet stringent emission standards that currently are only reachable by converting to hybrid taxis.
