Neil Russell, Sysco’s Chief Administrative officer, joined Governor Jared Polis and members of the Colorado General Assembly to celebrate the arrival of 10 electric trucks that recently joined our Sysco Denver fleet. At Sysco, we are proud to be the first heavy-duty fleet operator to bring widescale adoption of this new zero emissions technology to the state of Colorado.

Electrifying our fleet is an important component of Sysco’s ambitious climate goal to reduce our direct emissions by 27.5% by 2030. These efforts are driven by our commitment to protect our planet and create a positive change in the communities we serve.

None of this would be possible without our valued partnerships with Governor Jared Polis, Executive Director Will Toor of the Colorado Energy Office, the Colorado Legislature, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) who have helped accelerate the voluntary adoption of zero emissions technologies in Colorado through the Clean Fleet Vehicle Technology Program.
