SmartWay program is designed to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions

DSC Logistics, an integrated logistics and supply chain management company headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, announced that it has been accepted into the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry designed to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions and improve energy security.

DSC has received certification in two areas; as a logistics provider and a carrier partner. Companies that participate in the program fulfill the program's requirements of reducing fuel consumption and lowering costs and are recognized for their social responsibility and leadership.

The Partnership's goal is 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 freight operations.

"In 2008 we began working to become certified in the program. In addition, we implemented a number of high efficiency lighting projects at our distribution centers throughout the United States. DSC also has expanded our energy efficient building management practices and is working closely with our supply chain partners on inter-company initiatives that benefit the environment and our respective business plans," remarked David Kahlow, DSC's Director of Sustainability.
