Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. has announced results from a third-party sustainability performance report conducted by Ramboll, an engineering, design and consultancy company. The report highlights Utility’s environmental, health and safety performance.

Utilizing over two decades of data from all five of Utility’s manufacturing plants across the U.S., this report provides insight into the benefits and impact of Utility’s effort to responsibly reduce their overall air emissions, waste, and energy consumption, Utility says.

Through proactive green initiatives, Utility says it has eliminated ozone-depleting emissions from its inject-foam insulation process and reduced its overall waste and emissions. Results show that Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions decreased by 27%, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions were cut down 62% and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) air emissions dropped 97%.

Utility also sources all of its wood from forests certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI), the company says, and its focus on cardboard recycling yielded a 23% increase. In addition, the company says its recordable injuries decreased by 63%, while the most severe injuries (DART) declined by 67%, making it 31% lower than the industry average.
