New Penn is committed to environmental sustainability.

The U.S. Environmental Agency, along with 15 shipping and business leaders, formed SmartWay to improve environmental performance in the freight sector. Today, more than 600 organizations are SmartWay partners. By 2012, this initiative aims to eliminate between 33 and 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide emissions a year.

New Penn began its SmartWay Transport Partnership in 2005 with exceptional scores in fuel efficiency and environmental performance.
