Penske Supports New York Fleet’s Transition to CNG Trucks
Penske and Emerald Brand, a maker of daily-use disposable products, announced Emerald is introducing several Penske Truck Leasing CNG fueled trucks into its fleet in Syosset, New York. Emerald’s fleet will transition to CNG this month, furthering Emerald’s mission of global conservation and mainstreaming sustainability.
Each year, Emerald drivers deliver thousands of tons of its alternatively sourced, sustainable products to clients around the country. This conversion will greatly reduce the company’s environmental footprint by lessening the amount of gas emissions released into the air as compared to traditional diesel fueled vehicles.
“We are always striving to discover new ways to help the environment and reduce our footprint, and the conversion to CNG fueled trucks was the next sustainable step for our company to help deliver our products to clients in the most environmentally friendly way possible,” said Emerald Brand Managing Director, Jaclyn McDuffey.
Emerald’s CNG trucks will begin full operation this month with plans to refuel at local Clean Energy CNG stations.
