Transportation Collaboration Targeting Fuel Conservation and Emissions Reduction
Mobile, AL – Hackbarth Delivery Service today announced that it has submitted and had approved their data update with the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry leaders that aims to reduce transportation related emissions to improve air quality, increase supply chain fuel efficiency and protect the environment for future generations. The SmartWay Transport Partnership provides a framework to assess the environmental performance dealing with the movement of goods.
Hackbarth Delivery Service will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 120.7 million barrels of oil, $16.8 billion in fuel costs, 51.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), 738,000 tons of nitrogen oxide and 37,000 tons of particulate matter. This equals taking 10 million cars off the road. CO2 is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Hackbarth Delivery Service demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“We are headquartered on the Gulf of Mexico and our longstanding commitment to sustainable environmental practices has led us to this positive partnership. As a leading transportation company in this region, we believe it is our responsibility to also lead our community by being a responsible corporate citizen. We engage both the public and our team members to make an impact with projects that promote improved environmental quality such as wetland restoration, litter removal and conservation of resources. This SmartWay Partnership is part of our deep commitment to this ideal and, along with our other stewardship projects, will help create a better world for today and future generations” says Kim Hackbarth-Sweet, Director of Community Support for Hackbarth Delivery Service.
