According to the TTA, the award -- which is in its first year -- is designed to recognize organizations within the transportation industry that have made "significant, measurable improvements in air quality through the development and/or implementation of clean diesel actions." These actions range from educating drivers on fuel efficiency to equipping tractors with auxiliary power units to using alternative fuels.
