North Central Texas Council of Governments awarded SmartWay Affiliate Challenge award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized the North Central Texas Council of Governments as one of seven recipients of a SmartWay Affiliate Challenge award for support of policies and practices that reduce truck emissions and improve freight efficiency. 

The SmartWay Affiliate Challenge is a national campaign developed by the EPA to acknowledge organizations that do an exceptional job supporting the partnership’s freight sustainability goals. The challenge was open to all affiliates nationwide.

“EPA commends the Affiliate Challenge honorees for their extraordinary level of commitment, enthusiasm and creativity in supporting EPA’s SmartWay program and sustainable transportation,” says Christopher Grundler, director of the EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality. “The work in this arena helps advance the environmental sustainability of commercial transportation and logistic bringing us all closer to achieving the shared goals of efficient goods movement and clean air.”
