The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today named Georgia-Pacific Consumer Products a SmartWaySM Excellence Award winner for 2009, recognizing the company for its outstanding environmental performance. The SmartWay Transport Partnership is an innovative collaboration between the EPA and the freight industry designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing air pollution.

“I commend Georgia-Pacific for its leadership in promoting sustainable transportation practices through the SmartWay Transport Partnership,” said Margo T. Oge, director of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality, EPA. “These actions demonstrate a commitment to a cleaner environment and more secure energy supply.”

Paul Snider, vice president – transportation for Georgia-Pacific Consumer Products, said, “We are proud to be recognized as a major contributor to the EPA’s efforts to improve energy efficiency and minimize environmental impact in the transportation sector. These efforts are aligned with Georgia-Pacific’s ongoing commitment to minimize our impact while effectively serving our customers and consumers.”

Georgia-Pacific Consumer Products joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership in 2008. Some of the highlights in energy efficiency, fuel savings and environmental impact that Georgia-Pacific has achieved since joining the program include:

• Increasing intermodal shipping by 39 percent in 2008 vs. 2007, reducing fuel consumption by 2.6 million gallons.
• Initiating an idle reduction policy at its 12 distribution centers, asking drivers to turn off their engines while waiting to be unloaded/loaded. According to SmartWay, idling truck engines use about one gallon of fuel per hour.
• Using special software to help better pack product loads, gaining useable space in the trailer and thus reducing the number of trucks on the road.
• Reducing the total miles traveled from manufacturing point to customer delivery, which equaled about four million miles in 2008.
• Reducing deadhead (trucks returning empty) by 10 percent by better management of the transportation system and cooperation of contract carriers.
