Making a positive environmental impact.
During 2015 / 16, the Group updated its environment strategy to identify an action plan designed to deliver the Group’s goal of “a safe and sustainable environment for all”. Execution of the action plan will continue to build our reputation for delivering environmentally sustainable logistics through a focus on operational excellence and innovative product leadership. For our customers we know that a well-managed supply chain plays a key role in mitigating their impact on the environment. The Group therefore has an important part to play in helping customers achieve their wider environmental goals. The Group supports customers by identifying efficiencies, promoting collaborative working and by offering significant expertise and experience in managing environmentally sustainable logistics.

The Group has been submitting fully collated data to the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) since 2011. The CDP is the leading international index of climate change disclosure and carbon management maturity for companies and recognises companies raising their ambitions and taking meaningful steps to address climate change. Since 2011, our CDP disclosure score has risen from 56% to 95% and in 2018 we achieved “B” under the revised CDP scoring system.
