OUR ENVIRONMENTAL JOURNEY
Over the years we have always acted to implement environmentally friendly practices in our workplaces. In 2009 we gained the ISO14001 Global Environmental Management Standard and continually look to reduce our CO2e.
As a 4PL we are carrier agnostic and deliberately don't own any of our own vehicles to move goods however, we have always recognised that as a service business we can still take steps to reduce and manage our CO2e.
CCL initiatives include upgrading our fleet of company cars to electric, with charging points at our Troon and Derby offices. We also monitor and report the CO2e of hotel stays, business car mileage and travel. We've implemented recycling in all of our office spaces and where possible our lighting has been changed to LED and continue to proactively source suppliers and products with the least environmental impact. Our people can take advantage of the cycle to work scheme and we keep them engaged about environmental information with a quarterly environmental email.
As well as tangible changes we have also joined multiple communities, including CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and Sedex.
In 2023 John Murray joined as Head of Sustainability, his first focus was to gain GLEC accreditation for Greener Routes, our carbon tracking solution.
OUR FUTURE PLANS TO BE THE LEADING SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICS PROVIDER
We have developed a Carbon Management Plan that details how CCL will achieve Carbon Net Zero by 2026, recognising that the route to net zero is not linear and requires a stepped process.
Our sustainability strategy and vision has been developed using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 goals that outline how the world can be more sustainable along with the traditional 3 pillars of Sustainability (Environment, Social & Economic). Using these, CCL has carried out a comprehensive materiality assessment to determine what is important to our customers and society in general and developed a strategy that helps deliver the goals.
