Register now for the 4th GHG Workgroup Emerging Issues webinar, Engage in Freight Sustainability from Top to Bottom, on Tuesday, November 10, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The presentation will last approximately 45 minutes followed by time for Q&A.

Kathleen Martz, national regions & affiliate programs manager for EPA SmartWay, will share how building a solid freight sustainability strategy requires support and buy-in throughout your organization, reduces emissions from transportation, and leads to opportunities for recognition from EPA SmartWay

Martz says, “The approach I’ll take is that reducing carbon in logistics starts with a C-suite/management decision to establish freight sustainability as a business-as-usual process, i.e. to operationalize freight sustainability.

SmartWay has a kit advocates can use to move sustainability up to management. “Using SmartWay tools and emissions data, management can share with employees how their freight decisions affect the organization’s carbon footprint. They can track their year-over-year performance, set new efficiency targets, and in some cases, be eligible to receive recognition as either a SmartWay High Performer or a SmartWay Excellence Awardee,” notes Martz.

The webinar link will be included in your confirmation email.
