At Schneider, we’re committed to doing the right thing, the right way. We’re focused on our pursuit of a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive future, with a values-based approach to environmental, socially responsible and governance (ESG) initiatives.
Schneider operates one of the most energy-efficient fleets on the road today. Together with our partners, we’re leading the charge in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving fuel efficiency and actively decreasing our carbon footprint.
We’re consistently recognized for our investments, operational improvements and driver education programs because they deliver efficiencies across the value chain.
We’ve been focused on the future of sustainable freight long before it was trendy, from testing electrified powertrains to developing strategic zero emissions vehicle adoption plans. In 2022, we will deploy 50 Freightliner eCascadias (truck manufacturer’s first commercial Class 8 battery-electric truck) to our Southern California Intermodal operations, making Schneider one of the largest battery-electric truck fleets in North America. Funding is part of the Joint Electric Truck Scaling Initiative (JETSI), which is sponsored by the South Coast Air Quality Management District, California Air Resources Board and the California Energy Commission. We will add five more eCascadias with additional route options also in Southern California as part of the Air Shed Grant initiative.
As a company, we’re guided by our core values of safety, integrity, respect and excellence each and every day. Our commitments go beyond what’s happening on our trucks.
We know our ESG ambitions are only as strong as the policies, principles and leadership there to guide them forward. And we’re backed by the best.
Schneider’s executive team and board of directors have developed a governance structure that is supported by informed and effective decision-making; consistent monitoring of compliance and performance; transparent and ethical engagement; and unwavering accountability.
