Smarter Business: Greening Advisor

 

Clean and fuel-efficient transportation

The transportation sector is one of the largest causes of air pollution in the world, responsible for the release of chemicals that contribute to smog, global warming, and a wide range of health effects from asthma and other respiratory illnesses to cancer to thousands of premature deaths in the U.S. every year.

The best way to reduce these impacts is through clean and efficient transportation practices. Cleaner transportation practices means replacing or retrofitting old diesel trucks, buses and equipment—one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce pollution. More efficient transportation practices means using less fuel, which can save your business money. Visit the Transportation and Accommodation section of this resource for more information on ways to reduce fuel consumption and enhance your company’s environmental performance.
