Lily Transportation Corp became a SmartWay Partner in 2007 and has been committed to continuously setting and achieving Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction goals, improving fuel efficiency, and reducing air pollution ever since. The SmartWay Transport Partnership is an innovative effort of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who supports and recognizes freight carriers for setting and achieving goals that positively impact our environment.
Benefiting the Environment
SmartWay is a voluntary collaboration between the EPA and the freight industry to improve the efficiency of freight transportation for the benefit of the environment. Through its market-based approach, the partnership offers participants the opportunity to improve energy efficiency, save money, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve air quality.
Lily’s SmartWay Commitment
By being a SmartWay carrier, Lily agrees to continually improve fuel efficiency, while also improving the efficiency of the shipping and receiving operations. Lily is proud to commit to the following standards and practices:
Measure the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emission of our operations using the FLEET Performance Model
- Identify goals to reduce the GHG from freight facility operations
- Develop a plan, detailing how each of these goals will be achieved
- Report progress toward achieving each of these goals to the EPA annually
As a progressive c company, Lily is committed to understanding and reducing the environmental impact of our operations. The EPA gives us the tools to estimate emissions that result from our shipping practices. Understanding our environmental footprint allows us to continue to improve the efficiency of our facility dock and shipping operations. Becoming a SmartWay partner further confirms Lily’s dedication to mitigating its environmental footprint.
