EPA Smartway Program
In 2004, EPA launched SmartWay, a program that identifies products and services that reduce transportation-related emissions. The SmartWay brand signifies a partnership among government, business and consumers to protect the environment, reduce fuel consumption, and improve air quality for future generations. SmartWay partners can be involved in a number of points in the transport of goods:
- Freight shippers
- Truck, rail, air, and barge carriers
- Multimodal carriers
- Logistics providers
Becoming a SmartWay partner can be an important part of your firm’s environmental management system.
