Climate change is the biggest threat facing our world. It is down to all of us to do our part to reverse the harmful effects of carbon emissions, in order to provide a safe future for generations to come. 

As a transport company running a large fleet of vehicles, we must ensure that our day to day work does not make the current climate crisis even worse. This is why we have invested significant time, money and resources in to becoming carbon neutral. This is being achieved through a variety of initiatives we are taking. Please read on to find out more.

1) Carbon Offsetting

We have partnered with Earthly to offset the carbon emissions emitted by our fleet. 

Since mid 2021 we have begun to support projects throughout the world that actively remove CO2 from the atmostphere, as well as supporting people in the affected areas.

Every month we calculate the CO2 emitted by our fleet and we offset this + 10%. This has allowed us to gain Climate Positive Product certification.

2) ISO 14001 certification

We have UKAS accredited ISO 14001 certification with British Assessment Bureau. 

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.

We achieved this accreditation in 2020, alongside our long held ISO 9001 accreditation, in order to reduce our impact on the environment.

3) FORS accreditation

We were early adopters of the FORS scheme and are accredited to a silver level.

This is a scheme run for haulage firms which promotes safer working environments for drivers and the public. Silver accreditation means there is a focus on the environmental impact of our fleet and measures to reduce our carbon footprint via fuel efficiences and utilising new technologies. 

It also involves a commitment to work towards zero emission vehicles once suitable options become avialable. You can find more information on the FORS website by clicking here.

4) Renewing our fleet

We are constantly upgrating our fleet with the latest low emissions technology.

We currently only purchase vehicles that meet the strictest Euro VI emissions standards. 

Once zero emissions options become available, we will be among the first to upgrade our fleet to these vehicles in order to reduce our emissions further.

We also actively promote upgrading to Euro VI vehicles throughout our supply chain.
