Heavy Duty Trucking is once again looking to honor fleets that have made a commitment to sustainability, alternative fuels, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions through fuel efficiency and other means as HDT's 2020 Top Green Fleets.
HDT's editors are looking for fleets that are leaders in saving fuel and cutting greenhouse gases; that are adding alternative-fueled, electric or hybrid-powered vehicles; that are upgrading and building energy-saving facilities, have an innovative recycling program, and similar programs.
Interested carriers are asked to fill out a short survey online with basic information about their fleet, alternative fuel use, and EPA SmartWay participation, plus additional explanation of their "green" projects. Top Green Fleets will have made a commitment to sustainability, reducing emissions, increasing fuel economy or adapting new fuels. The designation goes beyond the truck and trailer and extends to facilities that are greener or companies with green policies.
Fleets of all sizes and types are encouraged to enter. Special attention will be paid to initiatives from the past year. The Top Green Fleets will be featured in the November issue of HDT and on Truckinginfo.com, will receive a certificate suitable for display, and be able to tout the achievement in promotional efforts.
The deadline for nominations has been extended to Sept. 9, 2020.
