State fleet vehicles are a major contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from state agency operations. To meet GHG limits established in RCW 70A.45.050, state agencies will need to transition fleet vehicles to battery-electric options.
The State Efficiency and Environmental Performance (SEEP) Office is responsible for implementing Executive Order 21-04 (Zero Emission Vehicles) in partnership with the Department of Enterprise Services (DES). To rapidly transition state fleets to battery electric vehicles, SEEP has established vehicle purchase exemption criteria, leads a comprehensive planning and implementation process, and supports investment in BEVs and EV charging at state facilities. SEEP leverages collaborative efforts with state agency stakeholders to make progress on fleet electrification.
