J.B. Hunt's sustainability efforts have resulted in:

  • 56% reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
  • 84% reduction in particulate matter
  • 88% reduction in nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • These are real numbers making a real difference in our environment. In fact, our pioneering green initiatives have made us one of the more environmentally friendly carriers on the road today.

    We're the industry leader in research and testing of low-viscosity drive-train lubricants, fuel-max tires and idle-reduction technologies. Our fleets are among the more aerodynamic available. We shrink empty miles through better route planning; we increase fuel economy by governing our trucks from 63 mph to 61 mph.

    As North America's leading intermodal shipper, we're in the forefront of helping companies convert over-the-road shipments to rail, a move that reduces carbon emissions by more than 50%. And our safety-focused culture helps protect both the environment and the motoring public's well being.
    These efforts and more have earned us the highest SmartWaysm rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and we're a two-time recipient of the SmartWay Transport Partner Award.

    At J.B. Hunt, we're doing the right thing for our society and environment by making our operations more efficient and less dependent on carbon-based fossil fuel. Now that's a breath of fresh air.
