Matt McLelland, Covenant Logistics’ vice-president – sustainability and innovation, points at recent requests for proposals when describing the increasing role of sustainability in fleet business practices.
“The environment is the thing most people are talking about,” he said during an ACT Expo workshop. “There were more sustainability questions than there were about, ‘Can you deliver the freight?’ and ‘Can you do it on time?’”
Many of the answers to such questions are highlighted in corporate environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) reports. And the fleet data which feeds such documents is increasingly being used to cut through the empty promises often described as ‘greenwashing’.
