Con-way Multimodal, a division of Con-way Inc., has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and industry designed to reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution. Con-way Multimodal will pursue activities that support the partnership’s goal to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012 by improving the environmental performance of U.S. freight operations.
“Participating in the SmartWay initiative supports our commitment to environmental sustainability – we know that’s important to our customers, and it’s a priority for us,” says Tyler Ellison, president of Con-way Multimodal. “SmartWay also provides tools for consistently tracking progress toward specific goals, which will help us maintain focus on our efforts. We look forward to many benefits from our participation in this important program.”
