Delphi Automotive have joined the SmartWay(SM) Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between the U.S. EPA and industry designed to significantly reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution.

"Delphi joins a growing list of environmentally-responsible companies focused on reducing transportation related greenhouse gas emissions while continuing to meet customer and operational requirements related to transit time and delivery reliability," said Sid Johnson, vice president, global supply management. "Continuous improvement of the environmental performance of our operations and products is everyone's responsibility at Delphi and we remain committed to protecting human health, natural resources, and the environment in which we live and operate."

Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay(SM) Transport Partnership brings together major freight shippers, trucking companies, railroads, logistics companies and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial strategies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements, as well as cost savings to the companies. The Partnership currently has over 2,600 partners.

As part of the alliance, Delphi's alliance with SmartWay will contribute to the Partnership's goal to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012 by improving the environmental performance of the company's freight operations. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Delphi reaffirms its commitment to strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
