PACCAR Achieves Elite ‘A’ Score From CDP For Environmental Practices

“The CDP Climate Change A listing recognizes PACCAR’s achievement of emissions reduction goals and other responsible environmental practices. We are proud to be in the top 2 percent of the over 6,000 companies which report to CDP,” said Ron Armstrong, PACCAR CEO.

PACCAR has been honored as a global leader in environmental practices by the environmental reporting firm CDP. The company achieved a place on the 2018 CDP Climate Change A List by demonstrating best-in-class disclosure and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in its commercial vehicles business and global facilities.

Every year, thousands of companies disclose data about their environmental impacts, risks and opportunities to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology. Reporting companies receive scores of A to D- for how effectively they are tackling climate change and other environmental issues.

“The CDP Climate Change A listing recognizes PACCAR’s achievement of emissions reduction goals and other responsible environmental practices. We are proud to be in the top 2 percent of the over 6,000 companies which report to CDP,” said Ron Armstrong, PACCAR CEO.

Environmental leadership is one of PACCAR’s core values, according to the company, demonstrated in its technologically advanced products and energy-efficient, sustainable operations. The company is focused on the development of alternative powertrain commercial vehicles. Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF are field-testing battery electric, hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid powertrain vehicles with customers in North America and Europe. PACCAR also is a leader in natural gas heavy-duty vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. Model year 2019 Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF trucks reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions up to 15 percent compared to 2014 models, the company reports.

In addition, PACCAR says it is committed to environmental leadership in its factory operations; 93 percent of the company’s manufacturing locations are ISO14001 certified and 75 percent are zero-waste-to-landfill facilities.
