Thanks to Will Reeves and the lovely team at the Freight Transport Association, The Heart of England Forest was able to discover the fantastic, innovative actions our Logistics industry is doing to reduce carbon and cut costs. With all the money saved – they can then plant trees!
Carole Longden comments,
“When you think of the amount of CO2 these massive trucks emit it’s great to know that the logistics industry is putting time, money and brainpower into reducing emissions and cutting costs. The Heart of England Forest will benefit from these guys’ enlightened approach to CSR and tree planting.”
The Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme Awards event held at The Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon showcased companies such as Brit European, TNT, DHL and Bridgestone and what they are doing to help save the planet. Graham Lackey, the MD of Brit European was particularly informative, with his company driving forward carbon reduction through a new use of duel fuel technology.
It’s a good job these companies can see the wood for the trees as they plan employee engagement strategies to change behaviour, reduce the carbon footprint and then recognise and reward staff with a day out in The Heart of England Forest.
