SCS Global Services is now approved as an independent verifier by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) for Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program (CFP), launched in 2016 to reduce the transportation carbon footprint of Oregonians. The CFP’s main objective is to encourage cleaner fuel usage using electricity, ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel and renewable natural gas based on incentives and requirements that create demand for such fuels in the marketplace. These fuels have lower carbon emissions than gasoline and diesel, helping mitigate climate change, improve air quality and reinforce public health.
