At a brief presentation held at our London office yesterday, we were officially presented with our Planet Mark™ Sustainability Certificate which we received last September for our performance from May 2016 to June 2017. You can read the news piece here.
The report measures our carbon footprint and environmental performance based on various factors such as vehicle fleet performance, electricity and water use among others. This year upgrades we performed on our fleet of vehicles to make them more efficient, along with habitual changes in how they are used by our drivers, such as a strict “no-idle engine” policy, helped improve our performance. In addition to that, our installation of LED light fixtures throughout our offices and new warehouse allowed us to reduce our overall company footprint by 6.3% which was above our projected target of 5%.
This is our fifth consecutive year of receiving the certificate and of making steady progress in our commitment towards the environment. We aim to continue to improve our performance and to lead the way in our industry every year by appointing a dedicated "green team" which ensures that they way we approach our work is as ecologically efficient as possible. Watch this space for future updates.
