Our Commitment to the Environment
At UniCarriers Americas, we recognize that green initiatives are not only good for the earth, they lead to good business practices — promoting efficiency, reducing waste and building goodwill with our customers now and for generations to come. As a result, we continue to introduce new environmentally responsible policies and practices in order to minimize our ecological footprint in our workplace and our community…and build forklifts that will do the same in yours.
UniCarriers Awards: We are proud of the comprehensive environmental and sustainability initiatives we have in place, and honored by the recognition we have received from others.
Our manufacturing facility has earned ISO 14001:2015 certification for environmental management — and we have developed action plans with specific targets and processes in place to:
- Minimize CO2 emissions to reduce our overall carbon footprint
- Reduce harmful emissions including VOCs to protect the atmosphere, water and soil
- Recycle resources — reduce, reuse, recycle to attain a 100% resource recovery rate
While we believe these initiatives alone will have a profound and positive impact on the environment, they are only part of a far broader ecological program UniCarriers Americas has in place for the benefit of our community, customers and the world we all live in.
UniCarriers electric powered forklifts are ideal for indoor applications and the environment — because they produce no emissions at all.
When it comes to forklifts powered by internal combustion engines, our GK21 and GK25 engines have set the standards in
> Higher fuel efficiency
> Lower emissions
In fact, both engines have:
> Earned certification by the EPA
> Earned Certification by California Air Resources Board (CARB)
> Reduced emission levels of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and nitrous oxide
