We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. As over 95% of our carbon footprint comes from our fleet, our focus is on increasing efficiency with the overall objective of reducing emissions and our impact on the environment.
Our new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are fitted the latest drive-technology and Euro VI engines offering significantly increased fuel efficiency and emissions reductions - 99% in particulate matter, 97% in NOx and 5% in CO2. Euro VI is the most stringent emissions standard yet. Mercedes-Benz's latest Euro VI engined Actros & Atego trucks and Sprinter vans utilise all three of the latest eco technologies - SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation), DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) - to provide the lowest possible emissions, greatest fuel efficiency and lowest overall running & maintenance costs.
We have chosen to purchase this latest range of Mercedes-Benz trucks for our new fleet expansion and refreshment programme - offering us significant improvements in emissions reductions and fuel efficiency.
Our driver training includes both fuel-efficient driving and maximising the fuel-efficient technology in our latest Mercedes-Benz trucks. Our new enhanced vehicle tracking software helps us increase the efficiency of how we utilise our fleet and we consolidate under utilised transport in order to save miles, money and vehicle emissions, helping us promote sustainable logistical solutions.
Our adherence to the ISO 14001 standard involves monitoring the environmental impact at our premises and provides evidence of continual improvement in our environmental management.
