Peterbilt receives 2024 Environment + Energy Leader Award

The E+E Leader Awards celebrate advancements in the realms of environmental, sustainability and energy management.

Peterbilt received a 2024 Environment + Energy (E+E) Leader Award in recognition of its Zero Waste to Landfill designation.

This is the 12th year of the E+E Leader Awards. Peterbilt was recognized as an Environmental Impact Winner. The organization says that winners of the award are recognized leaders in environmental initiatives and energy management, with their achievements serving as benchmarks for excellence across the globe.

Peterbilt says that its Zero Waste to Landfill program diverts 13.2 million lbs. of waste annually from its operations and also encourages landfill diversion among local suppliers. 82% of this waste is recycled, 17% is fuel blended and 1% is composted.

Peterbilt’s strategies for waste reduction include using reusable containers instead of single-use packaging, minimizing excess material, reusing materials on-site and improving operational efficiency. Peterbilt also facilitates an annual employee environmental fair to raise sustainability awareness and holds a household hazardous waste collection, promoting diversion of such waste from local landfills in the community.

“Peterbilt has been at the forefront of environmental excellence for decades, achieving the Zero Waste to Landfill designation over 15 years ago, which recognizes companies that handle waste in environmentally responsible and innovative ways,” said Leon Handt, Peterbilt assistant general manager of operations. “We are very proud to receive the 2024 Environment + Energy Leader Award and remain committed to reducing land and water pollution, emissions and climate impact to ensure a sustainable environment for future generations.”
