Oshkosh Corp. celebrates 18% drop in GHG emissions
Oshkosh Corporation has successfully decreased their greenhouse gas intensity by 7.6% and greenhouse gas emission by 18% since 2014.
The industrial equipment manufacturer recently released their 2019 Sustainability Report, which detailed their goals to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions and energy intensity 25% from 2014 to 2024.
The company succeeded in reducing energy intensity in manufacturing operations before the end of 2019 by 23.3%.
Oshkosh is a participant of the DOE’s Better Plants program and has also implemented initiatives to decrease the emissions associated with their vocational trucks through features like low rolling resistance tires and fuel-efficient engines. Since 2014, the company has banked nearly 60,000 metric tons in CO2 credits through the EPA for its vehicle emissions performance.
“Whether decreasing our greenhouse gas emission intensity, supporting the communities where our team members live and work or leveraging innovation across our portfolio of companies, each year we continue to strengthen our focus on delivering sustainability excellence,” Kevin Tubbs, Oshkosh Corporation Vice President, Chief Ethics, Compliance and Sustainability Officer, said in a statement. “As we look to the future, we remain committed to doing our part to build a more sustainable world.”
