Improving the Economic and Environmental Performance of the North American Truck and Bus Manufacturing Supply Chain

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Building on previous CEC work with the Suppliers Partnership for the Environment and Alianza Verde Automotriz for the North American automotive manufacturing sector, this project laid the groundwork for the establishment of a public-private partnership in the bus and heavy-duty truck manufacturing sectors. It provided a forum for sharing continued improvement, innovation, and successes of environmental management practices that reduce environmental impacts of these sectors. It also examined the economic profile and trends of the bus and heavy-duty truck manufacturing sectors in the past ten years, along with reviewing environmental management benchmarks and certification in the areas of waste management, water use, chemicals management, air quality, and energy efficiency
