Penske Truck Leasing won its fourth-straight SmartWay Affiliate Challenge Award. The company is one of seven organizations, and the only transportation corporation to win the award, which is presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“It is quite humbling for Penske to accept this distinguished award four times in a row,” said Drew Cullen, Penske Truck Leasing senior vice president of Fuels and Facility Services. “This speaks to the consistency of our team, and that our customers can count on us to aid them in becoming the best environmental stewards they can be.”
The SmartWay Affiliate Challenge is a national challenge developed by the EPA to acknowledge organizations that participate in SmartWay and do an exceptional job supporting the partnership’s freight sustainability goals.
SmartWay Affiliate honorees have proactively initiated and executed recruiting, promotional and marketing activities that raise awareness and encourage their members to address air pollution from freight activities.
“EPA commends the Affiliate Challenge honorees for their extraordinary level of commitment, enthusiasm, and creativity in supporting EPA’s SmartWay program, and sustainable transportation,” said Christopher Grundler, director of the EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality. “The work in this arena helps to advance the environmental sustainability of commercial transportation and logistics bringing us all closer to achieving the shared goals of efficient goods movement and clean air.”
EPA launched SmartWay in 2004 to help business improve the sustainability of their freight supply chains. The partnership currently consists of nearly 3,000 partners, representing a cross section of the freight supply chain industry.
