As a business, Banks and Lloyd is entirely committed to moving towards a sustainable and safer future and will do whatever it feasibly can to help achieve this, the company says.
It has joined the TTA sustainability group in the hope its background and expertise in international logistics will provide insight into movements happening towards greater sustainability in the logistics sector
“We are currently closely following the developments of ‘getting to zero’ coalition, a group that is endorsed by various governments (including the UK) that aims to emissions from shipping by 50% by 2050 (against 2008 emission figures),” Banks and Lloyd says. Over the years, the forward progression of this group is hoped to have a positive impact on the carbon footprint of any business shipping goods, but Banks and Lloyd believes once trends are set, the industry will likely follow.
Some of the biggest global shipping lines are already reportedly on board with the pledge.
The business says it’s doing everything feasible to move towards a carbon neutral future and is currently taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint. These steps include introducing hybrid working as a permanent part of its working culture, thus reducing business travel to and from the office.
The company is also in the process of installing EV charge points at its office, which will be free for use for employees. It’s also reportedly very close to achieving an entirely paperless office.
