Transportation rivals electricity generation as the largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – compromising air quality for over 134 million, or 4 in 10, Americans. Due to the magnitude of this issue, companies across the nation have transitioned from diesel to renewable natural gas (RNG), where appropriate, in their supply chain activities. What could lower transportation emissions mean for your sustainability goals? How about for communities with air quality issues?
Be the Change.
Given the impact transportation has on overall emissions, it’s certainly worth investigating throughout your supply chain. Whether you’re supplying raw materials to production facilities or delivering finished goods to retailers – transportation likely plays a significant and crucial role to your business… but also impacts quality of life for so many.
Depending on your business, transportation may be classified as scope 3 emissions, with the perception of being difficult to control. Until now. RNG is a fuel choice that has been widely adopted by fleets because of its proven infrastructure and vehicle technology. It offers unmatched emission benefits – featuring up to 125% well-to-wheel GHG reductions. Tailpipe emissions are good, but don’t factor in activities that relate to the fuel’s production. Bottom line – RNG has the ability to truly impact your sustainability goals and improve air quality – fast.
Go Green, Save Green
RNG isn’t just better for the environment. It will make a positive impact on your bottom line too. It’s become an affordable fuel solution through incentives for vehicle purchases, tax credits for fuel usage and an overall lower, less volatile fuel cost. When you choose RNG for your fleet you aren’t just going green, you’re also saving green and because of this, it will be an easier sustainability project to sell throughout your company.
Better yet, the RNG industry is firmly established, with far less unknowns compared to other alternatives (such as electric vehicles). Want to know how much you could save?Why not ElectricElectric vehicle adoption within commercial fleets depends largely on application. For light-duty vehicles, EVs are an attractive option. But for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, the technology hasn’t caught up to the need. Battery technology, charging infrastructure and total cost of ownership are still being defined. EVs will have their day, but RNG is a developed, tested, affordable option that you can leverage today. Your GHG reductions can’t wait for the EV revolution.
