TAC's Environmental Achievement Award recognizes exemplary contributions by a TAC organizational or individual member to the environment with respect to providing transportation services. Members who have made a contribution to the protection and enhancement of the environment or who have been particularly innovative in their approach to solve an environmental problem are eligible.
The establishment of this award is indicative of TAC’s sensitivity to environmental concerns and acts as an incentive to members to address the need to continue to develop and implement transportation-based environmental codes of practice and guidelines for their operations.
