environmental sustainability

It’s vital that we all use the earth’s natural resources in a responsible manner in order to preserve our planet for future generations.

At Advanced Supply Chain Group we have implemented a number of initiatives in order to minimise our impact on the environment in recent years and we are continually looking at new opportunities to achieve our ambition to be a carbon-neutral business by 2020.

We currently recycle over 1,000 tonnes of cardboard and almost 500 tonnes of plastic each year, and over the last decade we have significantly reduced the amount of our waste that is sent to landfill. We have also taken steps to improve our energy-efficiency and have recently invested in low-energy lighting at all of the sites that we operate.

Transport is a large part of our business we have recognised that this is an area where we can greatly reduce our carbon footprint. We have a rolling programme to upgrade our fleet to the latest Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks, which meet the stringent Euro VI standards for emissions, and we are ensuring that each of our drivers receives training in fuel-efficient driving techniques at the Mercedes-Benz Driver Training Centre. These initiatives are enabling us to reduce our carbon emissions whilst delivering a >5% improvement in fuel-efficiency.

Our Transport team is also keeping a close eye on developments with electric vehicles. We are keen to trial electric trucks as soon as the first models are released and our ambition is to have an all-electric fleet within the next decade.
