Environmental Policy Committee Forms & Seeks Volunteers

- In light of existing and emerging environmental laws and regulations effecting manufacturers, and truck and crane fleets, SC&RA is establishing an Environmental Policy Committee to advocate for the industry and address policies and practices to help members comply and manage environmental programs.  As an example, in addition to existing on-road engine emission standards, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) recently announced Advanced Clean Truck (ACT), a first-of-its-kind regulation that requires truck manufacturers to make the move from toxic-exhaust-emitting diesel engines to electric, zero-emission vehicles. ACT is set to begin in 2024 and will culminate in 100% zero-emission trucks in California by 2045.  Fourteen other states have pledged to work with California on this initiative. Additionally, while many member companies have effective programs in place, some companies are examining more energy-efficient facilities to reduce the carbon footprint and lower energy and utility bills. The work of the committee will help guide member companies through these environmental challenges. To date, members that have pledged to serve the Committee are: Christian Bartley, Tadano; Kevin Johnston, J&R Engineering; and Stefan Kohler, Goldhofer. If you are interested in serving on the Environmental Policy Committee, contact Joel Dandrea.
