We understand the importance of maintaining the world around us and know that it’s our responsibility to actively seek out ways to modify our business for the better by reducing our own impact on the environment.
Aptos, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
In accordance with their goal to provide the highest quality of services while adhering to only the safest operating standards and procedures possible, A-1 Auto Transport has taken yet another step forward this week by partnering up with eco-friendly group, SmartWay Transport.
SmartWay Transport was founded in 2004 by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to promote sustainability and the use of environmentally friendly practices within the freight transport industry. By raising awareness about emerging green technologies and the benefits that come along with such innovations, SmartWay hopes to drastically reduce the levels of greenhouse gas emissions that are being produced by auto transport companies.
In an industry which accounts for about 20 percent of all energy being consumed by the transport sector, it’s incredibly important that individual auto transport companies involved in freight transport be fully aware of their impact on the environment and be willing to do all within their power to reduce their carbon footprint. A-1 Auto Transport understands that and is taking the initiative to adopt and promote practices that will help to protect our environment for the future generations to come.
By teaming up with the EPA’s SmartWay Transport program, A-1 Auto Transport is simply showing their dedication to responsible business practices and standards. A-1 Auto Transport has been working in the auto transport industry now for over 22 years and is constantly looking for any and all opportunities to better accommodate the needs of their customers and that which they value, including the environment.
With offices based out of Santa Cruz, California, A-1 Auto Transport greatly reflects the progressive form of thought which seems to run as a common thread throughout the entire eco-friendly city.
“We understand the importance of maintaining the world around us and know that it’s our responsibility to actively seek out ways to modify our business for the better by reducing our own impact on the environment,” said Joe Webster, Marketing Director of A-1 Auto Transport.
Currently, A-1 Auto Transport is listed in the SmartWay database as having a SIF (Shipper Index Factor) of 1.25, which is the highest possible rating given out by the EPA group. This score is only given to companies which are “utilizing most of the commercially available fuel saving strategies and are actively evaluating the latest emerging technologies.” The partnership opportunity provided by SmartWay will only help A-1 Auto Transport to continue to address areas such as fuel consumption, the reduction of pollutant toxins, and cost benefit analysis for going green.
A-1 Auto Transport is hoping to light a fire amongst its own affiliates and spread the light of environmental awareness which they find to be so important. By offering green solutions to their own partner companies, A-1 Auto Transport is hoping to spread the idea of conservation and limitation of wasteful practices.
