Member renews Smartway Transport Partnership
Member Company and WBE Enterprise, Kingsgate Transportation Services, LLC, announced that it has submitted and received approval for their 2015 data update with the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry. The SmartWay Transport Partnership provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains
Kingsgate Transportation will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 170.3 million barrels of oil, $24.9 billion in fuel costs, 72.8 MMT of carbon dioxide (CO2), 1,458,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 59,000 tons of particulate matter. This is the equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 6 million homes. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Kingsgate Transportation demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“The Smartway partnership program with the EPA continues our commitment to being great stewards of our communities and the environment. As a second-generation family owned business, Kingsgate Transportation is committed to operating our company with the good of our communities and families in mind. Kingsgate understands the importance of being responsible corporate citizens and making a better tomorrow, today. We are honored to continue this partnership,” said Jeff Beckham, Partner.
