Freightliner admitted into environmental excellence program

Posted on February 3, 2009

Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) was recently accepted into the South Carolina Environmental Excellence Program (SCEEP) for the company's ongoing commitment to reducing waste and improving South Carolina's environment. 

 

SCEEP is a voluntary initiative designed to recognize and reward South Carolina facilities that have demonstrated environmental performance through pollution prevention, energy and resource conservation, and the use of an environmental management system.

 

FCCC was admitted into the program primarily on the strength of its Zero Waste to Landfill efforts, a pilot program initiated by Daimler Trucks North America, FCCC's parent company. The purpose of the program is to become 100 percent landfill waste-free by 2010. As of Dec. 31, 2008, the company has achieved 90 percent waste-free status, a gain of 62.3 percent for the year compared to 2007.

 

In March 2008, the FCCC plant was recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency's WasteWise Program for its 2007 waste reduction achievement and was accepted as a WasteWise partner. WasteWise engages government, businesses and nonprofit organizations to educate others about the benefits of reducing solid waste.
