Reducing Fleet Vehicle Emissions
It’s no surprise that transportation is now the largest contributor of carbon emissions in the U.S. for the first time in 40 years. While Liberty’s fleet is relatively small (less than 100 vehicles), we are proactively replacing gasoline-fueled vehicles with alternative-fuel vehicles whenever possible; currently 30% of our fleet is alternative-fuel or hybrids. In 2018, we will switch all our diesel-fuel fleet vehicles (which include our large work vehicles) to a high performance renewable diesel fuel that is manufactured from recycled fats and oils. We have met with some of our larger customers to encourage them to join us in this effort.
