What Is SmartWay Certification?

Understand how SmartWay Certification fits into the supply chain

SmartWay Certification is an innovative collaboration between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry designed to help businesses learn to move goods in the cleanest, most energy-efficiency ways possible, increasing energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution, and protecting public health. The EPA's SmartWay Transport Partnership is a market-drive initiative and since 2004, SmartWay Partners have avoided emitting more than 134 million metric tons of harmful air pollution, while saving 280 million barrels of oil and $37.5 billion in fuel costs.
