Time Warner Cable (TWC) today announced that it is joining a partnership administered by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to further reduce petroleum use and increase efficiencies within its fleet of more than 20,000 service trucks and vehicles. TWC’s participation in the DOE’s Clean Cities’ National Clean Fleet Partnership is part of the company’s “Go Green” initiative and overall commitment to corporate responsibility, under which TWC is on track to meet or exceed a 15 percent reduction in 2012 total carbon intensity by the end of 2014.
TWC’s fleet is one of the largest private sector fleets in the country and, in recent years, has taken action to utilize more fuel efficient vehicles. TWC is replacing service vehicles with Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect vehicles that are capable of achieving a 40 percent fuel performance improvement over replaced fleet. The Ford Fusion Hybrid has been made the standard TWC passenger car, which brings a 33 percent increase in fuel efficiency. The company has also doubled the number of Electric Power Take Off devices within its fleet of bucket trucks, which reduces idle time as it allows the vehicle to be shut down when the bucket is in use.As part of its overall corporate social responsibility strategy, representing those areas that TWC can most effectively influence and positively impact for the future benefit of all of its communities, the company is committed to raising environmental awareness, using fewer natural resources and generating less waste through “Go Green” initiatives. An Executive Steering Committee, chaired by Mr. Marcus, and a Go Green Working Committee, made up of TWC leaders from across the company, guide this effort through the development of policies, programs and processes that focus on environmental sustainability and environmental issues.
