Aug. 16, 2023
Navistar's most recent sustainability report outlines the company's work in developing efficient diesel powertrains, zero-emissions technology development, diversity and inclusion efforts, and legislative and charitable work.

Navistar released its 2022 Sustainability Report, which explores the company's zero-emissions product offerings, environmental footprint, social impact, and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

For more than 20 years, Navistar's annual sustainability reports have provided an overview of the company's environmental, social, and governance activities. This year's report underscores many of the successes Navistar has achieved over the past year in the areas of people, planet, responsibility, and impact.

"While supporting our customers' transition toward more sustainable and profitable business operations, we are readying our unrivaled network of dealers and partners in zero emissions," said Mathias Carlbaum, president and CEO.

The report includes an introduction of Navistar's internal combustion engine (ICE) platform, the International S13 Integrated Powertrain, which is the last ICE powertrain platform the company will develop. The S13 Integrated Powertrain is meant to provide combustion efficiency and a reduction of friction and pumping losses, leading to greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions.

The report also outlines Navistar’s developing range of zero-emissions solutions for customers and its progress at reaching 50% new zero-emissions vehicle sales by 2030 and 100% by 2040 for the U.S. The 2022 report includes the calculation and disclosure of the first full carbon footprint estimate for the company, starting with the footprint for 2021. This looks at Navistar's operations and the emissions upstream and downstream from its direct operations.

Moving into the company’s DEI section of the report, the 2022 document discusses how Navistar has expanded its TECH EmPOWERment program that supports dealers' recruitment efforts. The program leverages initiatives that provide career opportunities for high school graduates of every demographic and background, as well as military veterans interested in employment with Navistar dealers. Partnering with the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and SkillsUSA, Navistar added more outreach programs to recruit more women technicians.

Finally, the report discusses Navistar’s engagement with policymakers and regulators and its giving strategies to support education, equity, and the environment, including the donation of 14 engines and other equipment to ASE-accredited technical schools.
