LISLE, Ill. — For the second year in a row, Navistar has been ranked in the top 100 in Newsweek’s Green Rankings report on the most eco-friendly U.S. companies. The report also rated Navistar as one of the nation’s top 10 companies for environmental management, one of the three key components of each company’s overall Green Score.
“We are proud of this continued recognition of Navistar’s efforts to manage our environmental footprint effectively,” said Steven Covey, Navistar senior vice president, general counsel and chief environmental officer. “Our environmental management score, which was among the top 10 nationally, reflects our strong and detailed environmental policy, our environmental management system, and our programs to reduce hazardous waste generation.”
Navistar has also contributed to reduced emissions by introducing many eco-friendly products:
- The company pioneered the first smokeless diesel engine in North America.
- Navistar was also the first North American manufacturer to enter line production of diesel-electric hybrid commercial trucks and school buses.
- And, Navistar was the first major global truck manufacturer to bring an all-electric solution to the commercial truck market.
