About a dozen countries and 20 cities around the world have proposed banning the future sale of passenger vehicles powered by fossil fuels, such as gasoline and diesel, in an effort to reduce harmful emissions.
As we approach year-end and plan for 2020, consider a strategy that will include reducing emissions for the long term. This includes in your fleet, but also recycling programs, energy-efficient business practices — even encouraging employees to carpool.
According to a recent study that asks CEOs about sustainability strategies, the majority of respondents “face a key trade-off in the pressure to operate under extreme cost-consciousness while seeking to invest in longer-term strategic objectives.” The study, entitled “The Decade to Deliver: A Call to Business Action,” points out that only about half of the CEO respondents say they’re deploying low-carbon and renewable energy and are decarbonizing their supply chains. Only half see a net-zero future for their company in the next decade.
But companies can use a sustainability plan as a competitive advantage. Solutions, such as adoption of alternative fuel vehicles, deliver both environmental and economic sustainability.
We stand ready to assist. Over the last 13 years, we have invested tens of millions of dollars in an infrastructure that develops, manufactures and services clean transportation technology. We are leading that charge with our advancements in engine technology across a broad range of solutions like propane autogas, compressed natural gas and battery electric trucks and buses. Our ultra-low NOx propane engine is the cleanest on the market and is available today while we continue to develop our battery electric technology for medium-duty trucks and buses.
We understand that significant change is never easy. Having a partner such as ROUSH CleanTech at your side can help facilitate your organization in making the transition to a cleaner and lower cost fleet.
Please give us a call at 800.59.ROUSH to learn how we have helped more than 1,500 school districts, transit agencies and commercial fleets transform their fleets.
