Allison was recognized for her efforts in creating a healthy work environment for her employees and for the company’s focus on developing innovative solutions that promote lung health.
“Allison is humble to receive this award from the American Lung Association of Indiana,” said Ryan Milburn, vice president, e-mobility engineering, Allison Transmission. “As a responsible corporate citizen, we are committed to protecting human health, natural resources and the environment. We pride ourselves on supporting ALA’s vision for a world free of lung disease by creating solutions that improve fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and the overall carbon footprint, and result in cleaner and healthier air. ”

“We are pleased to present Allison Transmission with the Legacy Award for their commitment to advancing lung health through their corporate wellness efforts and innovations in conventional and electric propulsion technologies to reduce emissions,” said Tanya Husain, executive director, American Lung Association. “We look forward to continuing our partnership through our shared goal of creating a cleaner, healthier environment in support of lung health.”
Allison is committed to manufacturing solutions that are good for the environment. Over the past three years, Allison has invested approximately $ 250 million in innovation to advance electric hybrid and all-electric propulsion technology. Allison’s legacy H 40/50 EP ™ hybrid electric propulsion system has helped our customers save 305 million gallons of fuel and over 3.4 million tons of CO2. Last year, Allison took its proven electric hybrid H 40/50 EP to the next level and introduced the electric hybrid drive system eGen FlexTM for transit buses. The Allison eGen FlexTM offers revolutionary features to reduce the carbon footprint and support up to 10 miles of full electric range. The eGen Flex can operate accessories such as air conditioning and electrical heat with clean and quiet electrical energy with optimal efficiency. It also eliminates engine emissions and noise when loading and unloading passengers, in dense pedestrian zones, as well as in emission-free zones and bus depots, thus reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
In addition, Allison recently introduced the eGen PowerTM series of fully integrated electric axes. The e-axle was developed to replace conventional drive train systems. It has two high-speed electric motors and a multi-speed gearbox, so no additional drive shafts and support structures are required. The eGen Power 130D is one of the most powerful drive solutions in its class. The architecture is designed for high gradeability and high top speed without compromising efficiency. This reliable technology enables customers to take a critical next step on their journey to full electrification.
The company strives to make its contribution through donations to our local community such as the American Lung Association, a focus on employee wellbeing, and continuous innovation to reduce air emissions.
