Corona is one the largest manufacturers in South America. It makes products ranging from construction materials to household ceramics. In support of its climate change goals, Corona set a target to achieve a 10 percent reduction in the company’s carbon footprint by 2020. Over the last five years the footprint has shrunk by 5 percent, and as part of its efforts to double this figure, Corona has created an initiative called the Eco Driving project to decrease the emissions associated with freight transportation.
Corona owns 50 trucks and employs about 1,000 independent owner-operator drivers to haul its goods. The initial focus of the project is on the fleet of 50 company-owned vehicles in Colombia. A nine-month pilot program managed by CLI was completed recently.
