As a company, we have made a strong commitment to the environment. Across North America, we are utilizing new, renewable, environmentally-friendly fuels. This alternative fuel expansion represents our strategy to reduce STI's carbon footprint throughout the areas we serve and is part of the larger company-wide "Think Green" initiative.
We are at the forefront of the industry in the use of alternative fuels, including propane autogas (LPG), compressed natural gas (CNG), and biofuels technology. Our clean fleet has grown to include over 1,000 vehicles. We have invested millions of dollars in placing alternative-fueled vehicles in California, Texas, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Florida.
Along with a growing use of alternative fuels, we utilize GPS technology to
monitor idling, allowing us to better manage and reduce fuel cost. The resulting reduction in emissions provides a healthier environment for our young passengers and cleaner air for employees and the community at large.
We are even improving the workplace environments in which we work and live, and have resources that recycle our waste oil, filters, printer cartridges and other waste materials.
Our Anti-Idling Policy, revised in 2015 to reflect new Federal and State regulations, includes information to raise awareness on the effects of idling along with statistics, tools, strategies, and best practices that all of our employees and managers can share to help combat excessive idling and improve not only our environments, but also the financial performance of each location.
At STI, we believe that anti-idling is not an occasional act - it is a constant attitude.
