We are committed to protecting the environment by implementing sustainable business practices across our operations. Through our investment in fleet renewal and our continuing attention to initiatives such as Fuel Smart and other conservation and waste minimization efforts, we are reducing our environmental footprint while saving millions of dollars—which is good for the earth and good for our business, too.
We have also established an environmental steering committee, composed of vice-presidents from across different functional areas, to help define our environmental agenda, review progress and ensure that we stay on track. As always, we consider full compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations as the minimum acceptable level of performance. In 2012, we provided 38,425 hours of environmental training to nearly 29,000 employees.
