Objective: Eliminate harmful emissions associated with the distribution of Haworth products and services and member business travel.
How are we achieving this?
- Haworth uses criteria heavily focused on sustainability to contract third-party carriers, both in the U.S. and internationally.
- For inbound freight in West Michigan, we collaborate with other area companies to “ride share,” reducing costs and trucks on the road.
- Haworth also leases a fleet of five fuel-efficient, low-emitting diesel truck tractors for local transportation, where our highest concentration of suppliers and manufacturing facilities are located.
- For outbound transportation, uses data-driven technology systems to schedule deliveries in order to reduce both mileage and the total number of truckloads.
Smartway Transport Program
||Haworth joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Transport Program, a nationwide initiative to promote cleaner, more fuel-efficient transportation options. Haworth, a shipper partner in the EPA program, contracts with third party carriers throughout North America for delivery of their product.
