SmartWay Charter Partners

EPA wishes to acknowledge its 15 Charter Partners who came together over 10 years ago to help develop, launch, and champion SmartWay. Their leadership, ingenuity, and commitment to freight sustainability led the way for the thousands of partners who followed.

The American Trucking Associations and Business for Social Responsibility were key players in helping EPA convene a Charter Partner working group to develop SmartWay in 2003. These SmartWay Charter Partners are listed below.
