We strive to protect the environment for our communities, employees, customers, and stakeholders. We have embarked on several specific initiatives to limit our impact on the planet.
Protecting the Environment
We proactively set specific environmental improvement targets. Management and employees are committed to conducting our business in a manner that preserves, protects, and enhances the environment through our Environmental Protection policy.
In the event of a sudden and accidental spill of product in transit, our emergency response plans are in place to handle urgent situations, engaging qualified third-party environmental consultants to keep the public safe.
Corporate initiatives including leveraging technology to manage our fleet’s fuel economy, engine performance and tire management, reducing utility needs, and handling wastewater treatment recognizes the potential impact of our operations on the environment and how we can do our part.
We invest in upgrading tractors that have better fuel economy, and work directly with engine suppliers to lower emissions, carbon dioxide, and other greenhouse gas emissions. The focus is on new technology that lowers fuel consumption and air emissions.
