What’s New for the SmartWay Excellence Award

EPA’s 2015 SmartWay Excellence Award recognizes exceptional achievement among EPA SmartWay partners. The 2015 award assessments will be based on environmental performance as demonstrated by partner data submissions with the SmartWay freight assessment and carbon tracking tools. Additional leadership criteria will be considered in some partner categories as described below. EPA recognizes eligible partners in the following categories:

Shipper Awards

EPA identifies a pool of top-performing shipper candidates in good standing for consideration based on environmental performance, use of SmartWay carriers to move their freight, and freight mileage with “large” and “medium/small” mileage categories. These shipper semi-finalists are invited to provide EPA with supplemental, qualitative documentation that demonstrates leadership actions that support SmartWay’s environmental goals. Final shipper awardees will be selected from the pool of semi-finalists based on their supplemental submissions.
