The NJ Clean Cities Coalition (NJCCC), is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization incorporated in the state of New Jersey for the promotion of education related to the development and use of alternative fuels, alternative fuels vehicles, and the appropriate related infrastructure. As a designated Coalition within the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program, the NJ Clean Cities Coalition is one of approximately 90 similar entities across the US, and the only one in New Jersey. Clean Cities strives to advance the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local decisions to adopt practices that contribute to the reduction of petroleum consumption. The Clean Cities network of coalitions support the development of public/private partnerships to promote alternative fuels and advanced vehicles, fuel blends, fuel economy, hybrid vehicles, and idle reduction.
The NJCCC has formed a membership coalition for the benefit of its stakeholders. The goals of the membership coalition include the facilitation of the reduction of our dependence on imported oil, reduction of regional air pollution from vehicle emissions, assistance to stakeholders and other local businesses and public entities with regulatory environmental compliance, encouragement of economic development through job creation, and to create a positive community image.
Having established itself as one of the premiere organizations in the state, the NJ Clean Cities Coalition is a proud member of "Innovation NJ".
