The SmartWay Transport Partnership is an innovative collaboration between EPA and the freight industry. The Partnership creates strong market-based incentives that challenge companies to improve the environmental performance of their freight operations. SmartWay Transport partners improve their energy efficiency, save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve air quality. These awards recognize freight industry leaders that have made significant contributions to protecting the environment through their participation in the Partnership.

Criteria:

  • fuel consumption from trucks and rail delivering freight
  • operating costs associated with the delivery of freight
  • emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas
  • NOx emissions and particulate matter, and air toxics that adversely affect air quality and contribute to health problems, especially in densely populated urban areas.

It is great to recognize those companies that are working to become cleaner and greener because hopefully, other companies will take notice and begin to do the same. Besides, companies should be praised when they do something that is beneficial, and becoming greener and cleaner most certainly is!
