As we dive deeper into fleet emissions reduction initiatives, we’re learning firsthand about the current limitations of future technologies and the reality that significantly more innovation is required to create viable alternatives to diesel. We’re invested in our approach and continue to research a diverse set of technologies to meet our public emissions goal. Additionally, we’re proud to see year-over-year improvements in our DOT crash rate, increased women in leadership roles and on our Board of Directors, and continue to expand our employee development opportunities.”
