Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing several blog posts that shed light on Bison’s sustainability-relate initiatives and practices. As a transportation provider, our carbon footprint is almost directly related to how much fuel we burn, and the greenhouse gases (GHG) we emit. The most impactful and effective way for a carrier like Bison to become more environmental sustainable is through increased fuel-efficiency. This blog series will explore many areas of Bison’s sustainability initiatives, technologies and strategies that increase our fleet’s fuel economy and help set us apart as leaders in energy and environmental performance.
This is part one in a four part series on Bison's sustainability efforts. Stay tuned for part two!
