BENNINGTON, NH | Monadnock Paper Mills reports it is now an EPA SmartWay Transport Partner. SmartWay is a US EPA voluntary public-private initiative designed to address a variety of environmental issues and impacts associated with transportation‚ such as greenhouse gas emissions‚ fuel consumption‚ criteria pollutants (NOx and PM), and overall costs associated with over-the-ground transport.
The goal the EPA has set for reductions in environmental impacts by 2012 equates to the equivalent removal of 12 million cars from the nation's highways. Partner enrollment requirements for shippers include measuring current shipments via SmartWay carriers and committing to ship 50% of all goods via SmartWay carriers. They also require improving facility transportation within three years and creating an overall action plan with annual reports submitted to the EPA.
“We are happy to report that Monadnock already meets the goals set forth by the EPA‚” says Chris Benincasa‚ VP, Supply Chain. “Further reducing emissions and supporting those carriers that do so as well are in tune with our corporate objectives and are good for business overall.”
