Navistar releases decarbonization update in 2023 sustainability report

Navistar said the report also looks at its commitment to sustainability through environmental initiatives, human rights due diligence and more.

Navistar recently shared its 2023 Sustainability Report, which the company says highlights how it is “accelerating the impact of sustainable mobility with its main area of strategic focus on decarbonization.” Navistar said the report also shines a light on how the company is solidifying its commitment to sustainability through circular business practices, social impact and environmental compliance initiatives, human rights due diligence, and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

 “Sustainability initiatives open new areas of growth and opportunities in business developments, digitalization, and more efficient design thinking,” said Mathias Carlbaum, Navistar president and chief executive officer. “We are serious about helping our customers achieve their business objectives, and we understand clearly that the time is now to make bold moves on behalf of our planet and its people.”

According to the company, sustainability at Navistar involves looking at the confluence of planet, people, and responsibility. Navistar added it is one of its strategic pillars to accept our responsibility to contribute to improving the impact of our business on the environment and society. 

Highlights from 2023 sustainability report:

  • Navistar said it is committed to developing science-based targets consistent with the criteria of the Science Based Target Initiative.
  • Navistar joined the United Nations (UN) Global Compact initiative, which it said solidified the company’s commitment to sustainability. The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
  • Navistar conducted its first double materiality assessment in 2023 to evaluate and engage with stakeholders on various sustainability topic areas to determine those that are most relevant and important to the company. Topics included climate change adaptation and mitigation, equal treatment and opportunities for all, working conditions and management of supplier relationships.
  • In July, IC Bus launched its next generation CE Series in both diesel and electric powertrain options. Since the initial launch of the electric CE Series in 2020, Navistar said IC Bus worked to educate dealers, technicians, and customers alike on the transition to electric.
  • To help support the charging infrastructure development for zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs), Navistar tells us it worked on partnering with industry stakeholders to launch Powering America’s Commercial Transportation (PACT), a coalition focused on education and advocacy for accelerating the construction of nationwide infrastructure for medium- and heavy-duty ZEVs.
  • Navistar began production of the new International S13 Integrated Powertrain at the Company’s Huntsville, Alabama production facility.
