Specialty vehicle and equipment manufacturer Oshkosh Corporation has been recognized as one of “America’s Greenest Companies 2024” by Newsweek. Published in partnership with Plant-A Insights Group and GIST Impact, the list recognizes the top 300 American companies for their progress in managing their sustainability footprint.
Companies were evaluated on four criteria: greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, waste generation, and sustainability data disclosure and commitments.
“A focus on sustainability is in our DNA. We continually raise the bar on our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance to make steady progress towards our long-term sustainability goals,” said Kevin Tubbs, vice president, chief ethics, compliance and sustainability officer, Oshkosh Corporation. “We’re honored to be recognized for our sustainability efforts by Newsweek.”
Innovating solutions that reduce environmental impact, including the expansion of its purpose-built, battery-electric-powered products is a priority at Oshkosh, according to the manufacturer. The company’s electric vehicle (EV) offerings now include North America’s first fully integrated, zero-emission electric refuse collection vehicle, North America’s first electric fire truck, the world’s first all-electric scissor lift, the next-generation delivery vehicle (NGDV) for the United States Postal Service and an electric airport rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) vehicle.
Oshkosh has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for four consecutive years, has been named one of America’s Most Responsible and One of the World’s Most Trustworthy Companies by Newsweek, is one of FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Companies and has been recognized by Ethisphere as one of the World’s Most Ethical companies.
