On April 20, 2017, as part of its Earth Day activities, EPA SmartWay honored nine stakeholders as exceptional affiliates for their outreach and educational activities to improve efficiency in the goods movement industry.  “EPA commends the SmartWay Affiliate Challenge honorees for their extraordinary level of commitment and enthusiasm in supporting more efficient and sustainable business practices in moving goods,” said Christopher Grundler, Director of EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality. “These organizations represent diverse industry sectors and stakeholders who are showing that American prosperity and protecting the environment can go hand in hand.”
