TFI International understands our responsibility to improve the livability of the communities we serve. Every day we make a conscious effort to protect the environment across all operations and activities.
CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION
We strive to reduce our carbon footprint through the purchase and use of the most up-to-date technologies available in the marketplace.
Our fleet is typically equipped with the latest in fuel economy, safety and aerodynamics, allowing vehicles to operate more efficiently. Most new equipment is ordered with Eco Options and/or Green House Gas (GHG) emission lowering options, which can result in significant potential fuel savings over previous equipment designs.
To eliminate the potential risk of environmental contamination, we remove in-ground fuel and diesel tanks across our network in North America. When appropriate, we install new above ground fuel tanks with current engineering construction standards. This ensures maximum safety for the operator and protects the environment from potential spills.
In 2017, we initiated an intense review of our lighting systems in our terminals. Since then we have been upgrading to T5s or LEDs wherever possible.
We also reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling by installing clean systems and electronic or programmable thermostats. In addition, we conduct annual inspections to recognize and address any low performance areas.
We maintain the environmentally clean conditions of our sites through audits conducted by our own team as well as third party environmental specialists. Based on subsequent results and feedback, we undertake any necessary actions to meet or exceed governmental standards.
In addition, all sites are equipped with recycling and waste services.
