U.S. Xpress Enterprises released its 2021 Corporate Responsibility Report, highlighting key accomplishments and goals in areas including environmental responsibility, community engagement and corporate leadership.
The report, which is updated annually, details how U.S. Xpress is reducing carbon emissions in its fleet of more than 6,500 trucks, in its maintenance facilities and at the company’s headquarters.
For example, a 15-year partnership and continued commitment to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program has significantly reduced emissions and the company regularly ranks in the top 20% of all carriers.
U.S. Xpress plans to reduce its carbon footprint 60% by 2035, double its community involvement by 2025 and establish three new employee resources groups this year, the company said in a press release.
Four pillars for community engagement include initiatives focused on safety and wellbeing, military veterans’ programs, education and innovation and families and health. U.S. Xpress plans to expand existing community partnerships and identify new organizations aligned within its areas of focus, company officials said.
Also included in the Corporate Responsibility Report is an overview of senior leadership and the Board of Directors, the company’s goals around diversity and inclusion.
