Sustainability

We're champions of greener logistics and sustainable freight solutions

A Greener Alternative

Rail freight is fundamental in helping customers reduce their carbon and other harmful gas emissions without compromising on reliability and especially efficient for long distance journeys as well as being greener
Rail freight produces 76% less CO2 than lorries
One train journey moves the same cargo as 76 HGVs
Less than 1% of total UK CO2 emissions are produced by rail
21% of total UK CO2 emissions are produced by road

Sustainability Gap

Later this year, the UK will host COP26 in Glasgow. This is the first time the UK has ever hosted the UN’s annual climate summit, and the first summit when many of the ‘by 2020’ elements of the landmark Paris agreement of 2015 can be judged.

It may be the most significant ever. Sustainable transport organisations see this Conference of the Parties (COP) as a key opportunity to galvanise efforts to achieve the UK’s legally binding goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest.

The transport sector’s emissions have actually increased in recent years; it is now the single largest emitting economic sector in our country. COP26 presents a chance to deepen the shift to sustainable transport.

There are other reasons to get excited which go well beyond the environmental agenda: to improve our air quality; to reduce inequalities and include more isolated communities in our transport gearchange; and to raise our activity levels and thereby our public health.

For change to truly stem from this summit, the positive differences that COP26 can make to people’s lives have to be at the fore. We cannot allow this opportunity to slip by without leaving an impression on the conscience of the UK public.

Procuring low carbon supply chain solutions, provides an immediate benefit to your business and the environment.

Digital Solutions to Reduce CO2

Our innovative Digital Platform has been developed to have a positive impact on reducing CO2 emissions across Rail Freight in the UK and Europe. By drastically improving utilisation we can reduce UK CO2 emissions by 40 million tonnes per year.
