Certification Steps

The Clean Carrier Program evaluates carriers based on key factors, including the implementation of fuel-efficient and idle management equipment, the use of alternative fuels, and the average age of the vehicle fleet. This comprehensive assessment ensures that certified carriers are making strides in environmental sustainability, and the Clean Carrier team will work with you to help you succeed—  every step of the way!

Step 1: Pre-application

BCTA members can begin the process by completing the pre-application form available on our website. This initial step provides us with essential information about your fleet and your interest in the Clean Carrier Program.

In order to apply, carriers must:

  • Be a BCTA member in good standing (click here to join)

Step 2: Information Outreach

Once we receive your pre-application, our team will reach out to you. We will provide detailed information about the Clean Carrier Program and the certification process, as well as the data and documentation we require.

Step 3: Data Collection & Submission

Collect the necessary information and documentation as outlined in Step 2. This includes data related to your fleet’s average vehicle age, aerodynamic devices used, your driver training program, and more. Submit this information to our team.

Step 4: Review & Certification Assessment

We will review the data and documentation you have provided. We will assess your fleet’s current environmental performance and carbon footprint based on the information submitted.

Step 5: Clean Carrier Certification or Emissions Reduction Plan

Depending on the assessment results, you will receive one of two outcomes:


If your fleet meets the required environmental standards, you will receive Clean Carrier certification for the present calendar year. This certification is renewable at the start of each new year, ensuring your commitment to maintaining eco-friendly fleet practices.

Emissions Reduction Plan

If your fleet’s emissions need improvement to meet the standards, we will work closely with you to develop a tailored plan aimed at lowering your fleet’s emissions and improving its environmental performance. This plan will be designed to help you achieve Clean Carrier certification in the following calendar year, ensuring that you are on the path to greener and more sustainable fleet operations.
