How We Work…

Trucking, Industrial and Agricultural Equipment, and Construction… how can these industries enact environmental change?

FIRST, they can take proactive steps to help eliminate preventive maintenance-related oil spills, overflows, and drips that impact water, soils, wildlife and human health.   UPS, Ruan Transportation, and the Departments of Transportation in PA, MD, MO and numerous smaller fleets across the country have been the trailblazers in implementing environmentally safe evacuation valve kits for used oil, transmission fluid and hydraulic fluids.

NEXT, they can join these and other industry change agents, such as:

  • Target
  • Sherwin Williams
  • Martin Marietta
  • Marzetti Foods
  • Sysco Foods
  • UPS
  • Kenworth
  • Freightliner

​and many others who have made significant commitments to environmental stewardship in all facets of their operations. Working on behalf of companies such as these, the Council for Environmental Standards strives to educate and engage the members’ customer bases to encourage them to work exclusively with industry members committed to clean, pollution-free operations powered by fossil fuels

Whether transporting goods, building facilities, planting or harvesting for America’s marketplace, the nation’s transporters, builders, growers and retailers are seeing the wisdom behind implementing across-the-board sustainability in all they do.

We cross-reference and refer Council members and like-minded consumers to companies exhibiting strong environmental stewardship – and a commitment to honoring the intellectual properties and ideas of the people who are improving our world – to help build a 360-degree, integrated system of sustainability.  Participants throughout the supply chain have countless opportunities to help grow green fleets across America. 

Enviro Balance

Who’s Standing in the Bull’s Eye?

If your company manufacturers, owns, or operates…
• Trucks
• Heavy or Agriculture Equipment, or other
• Motorized Vehicles and Apparatus…

Your Company Is.

If you are a CEO or on the decision making team involved with the supply chain for production of consumable goods, manufacturing, transportation, building, distributing, or retailing products…

You Are.

Commerce is the backbone of local and global economies alike. Environmentally driven activists and consumers across the globe are demanding and seeing change in the production, manufacturing, transporting, warehousing, and retailing of goods. This concentration on the environmental process touches all aspects of the supply chain. Conducting commerce in our diverse, changing, and demanding world today is bringing a new meaning to the word challenge.

The Council on Environmental Standards stands as the bridge between trade and an integrated and balanced environmental process within the supply chain – to help you navigate that change and work with peers that are going through the process, including those that have profited from it.

     “Clearly, it’s imperative for both commerce and environment to be protected for the preservation of both.

Participants in the trade process are looking inwardly for like-minded commerce partners who share that commitment to ensure environmental stewardship from concept to delivery to a waiting public, all of which is dependent upon…

  • B2B networking with vendors engaged in an integrated and seamless sustainability process
  • Established standards for all aspects of used fluids management;
  • Environmental technician training and accreditation of Council Members’ operations and people; and,
  • A commitment to an integrated sustainability collaboration that brings balance to environmental protection and commerce.

Join today’s brightest thinkers and innovators to help strike a sensible balance between keeping commerce moving and protecting the environment.
