WINNIPEG, Man. — Bison Transport will have to make room in its trophy case for yet another award – this time a sustainability award from the Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development.
The award was presented at the Manitoba Excellence in Sustainability Awards. Manitoba Minister of Conservation, Bill Blaikie, presented the award to Bison Transport president and CEO Don Streuber.
The Manitoba Excellence in Sustainability Awards were set up to recognized companies that incorporate sustainable development into their everyday business practices to establish solid and lasting results, organizers say. Bison was recognized for its use of long combination vehicles (LCVs), driver fuel efficiency training and its sustainable transport strategy.
“When one first thinks of the trucking industry, the environment is not often in the forefront of their minds,” admitted Streuber. “That image is quickly changing, for example Bison’s long combination vehicles are the greenest trucking operation on the road today, and with aftermarket aerodynamic features we have reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40%.”
