CA Attorney General Xavier Becerra

Now is an important time to highlight businesses pushing the way forward for clean air technologies and the investments needed to get us there. That’s why we are proud to honor Vic La Rosa of Total Transportation Services, Inc., who has invested heavily in the testing, development, and use of zero-emission trucks (both hydrogen and electric) and has a stated goal of converting his entire local fleet of 200 trucks to either zero or near-zero emission by 2020. Awardee United Airlines has led the way in converting to electrified cargo handling equipment and in renewable jet fuel. In addition, the important role of California’s leadership can’t be understated, which is why we are honoring California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for defending California’s clean air authority and establishing an environmental justice unit within his office.

For the 28th year, the Coalition for Clean Air presents our highest honors to California’s clean air champions. Each year at this signature gala event we salute the individuals, organizations, and companies who are making outstanding contributions to California’s clean air future.

On May 31, 2019, at the California Air Quality Awards luncheon, leaders from government, business and citizen advocacy will again share the stage to receive our thanks before an enthusiastic audience of hundreds of their peers.
