Protect Our Most Sacred Partnership

Planet Earth does the heavy lifting for us day in and day out. Let’s make sure we’re doing the same for it in return. Earth Day is the day we come together to celebrate our most natural resources. The theme for this year’s global Earth Day is Invest In Our Planet.

EarthDay.org says, “A green future is a prosperous future. We need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens – everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.”

While our environmental leaders work tirelessly for local and national policies that help create a cleaner and more protected environment, we here at G&W continue to stay abreast of what these policies and changes mean for you and your business. To be a partner for the planet, it’s time to rethink your jobsite. How efficient is it? How much energy is being spent? How are your trucks impacting your footprint left on Planet Earth?

G&W will work with you to provide the right solutions for a safe, clean and efficient work environment. We offer solutions that will drive your cost of ownership down through higher efficiency, massive reductions in energy consumption and less maintenance lift-truck options, all while significantly reducing the impacts to our environment.

How Electric Lifts Can Save the Earth While Saving You Cash:

  • Each electric lift can reduce CO2 emissions by 120,000 lbs over 10,000 hours of operation.
  • Each electric lift can eliminate up to 3,000 gallons of consumed fossil fuel.
  • Each electric lift can eliminate up to 100 gallons of engine, transmission and drive axle oil.
  • Each electric lift can eliminate over 70 filters going into landfills.
  • Average cost per hour to operate an electric is $2 less than gas trucks.
  • Average reduction in ambient noise pollution by 30 db.


Jungheinrich’s EFG Series is just one of the many examples of a truck that delivers on the productivity you need, without sacrificing emissions or energy. With its powerful 4th generation, 3-phase AC technology, you will experience energy efficiency like no other.

Longer run times – two shifts on one battery charge – maximize productivity while keeping operation costs low and lost energy is kept to a minimum, optimizing the forklift’s efficiency.
