This groundbreaking achievement is a testament to the company’s commitment to sustainability and innovation, marking nearly seven years of diligent efforts to lead the industry toward a greener future.
Lazer Logistics’ First Million Zero-Emission Miles and Moves by the numbers:
Carbon Footprint Reduction
Over 13 million pounds of CO2 emissions have been prevented, providing a significant positive impact on global greenhouse gas reduction efforts.
Lazer’s EVs have accumulated more than 400,000 hours of key-on time, demonstrating not only environmental benefits but also the reliability and efficiency of our fleet.
Lazer’s EV program has saved over 600,000 gallons of diesel, showcasing the economic and environmental advantages of transitioning to electric vehicles.
The Lazer Logistics EV program milestone is equivalent to:
• The removal of 1,300 cars from the road.
• The avoidance of burning 6.6 million pounds of coal.
• The growth of over 100,000 tree seedlings for a decade.
• The energy equivalent of powering 7,500 homes annually.
There have been significant reductions in criteria air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM2.5), and carbon monoxide (CO), leading to cleaner and healthier air quality for Lazer’s employees, clients, and communities they serve.
