Kudos to four companies within the trucking industry who have been included in Newsweek’s Top 500 Green U.S. Companies. UPS, FedEx, C.H. Robinson and J.B. Hunt Transport Services are all included for their efforts to be greener.
The complete list, available at www.Newsweek.com, includes a number of other companies that have working relationships with trucking, such as Goodyear. Newsweek worked with KLD Research & Analytics, Trucost and CorporateRegister.com to develop the list. According to the magazine, the “500 companies included in the ranking are the largest U.S. companies as measured by revenue, market capitalization and number of employees.”
Each company was assigned an environmental impact score, a green policies score, a green policies and a reputation score from which the list was compiled.
UPS ranked highest of the four, coming in 85th overall with a score of 78.36. FedEx was 93rd with a 77.50 with C.H. Robinson scored 63.05 to place 414th and J.B. Hunt a 63.05 to finish at 429th.
While others in the industry could certainly be included in the list had they met the qualification criteria set by Newsweek, these four should nonetheless be applauded for their efforts.
