Stride Courier Services Ltd – Environmental Statement
At Stride Couriers, we are aware of the environmental issues our planet is facing and the current climate crisis. We acknowledge our role in this as a Transport company and how we can make significant changes to our impact on the environment through responsible operation and management of our business.
Protecting our planet is very important to us and we review our environmental responsibilities and sustainability goals on a regular basis to see where and how we can continue to improve in this area. We use careful route planning and efficient fuel management to keep our emissions to a minimum and we take several measures to offset our carbon footprint, such as the ‘EcoPoint’ charge through our fuel card usage.
Additionally, we have a stringent waste management policy in place, operating virtually paper-free in our office, recycling and re-using where we can, and reducing the amount of waste we produce as a business overall. We implement new policies and procedures regularly to keep us in line with our environmental aims and help protect the future of our community and planet as well as supporting environmental charities and organisations. We have long term plans to invest in greener transport where possible, including electric vehicles and alternative fuel solutions.
We are committed to lowering our use of fossils fuels and reducing our overall carbon emissions and we will achieve this through working collaboratively with our industry partners, supply chain and customer base as well as raising awareness both internally and externally.
Our policies and processes are continually changing and improving to ensure we stay on track with meeting our environmental and sustainability goals.
Currently, we have set the following pledges to help keep us in line with our aims:
