A big problem

It’s taken decades of warnings and research, tax rises, war, Oscar winning movies, emissions legislation, child-led global protests, devastating floods and heatwaves, and billionaire entrepreneurs, but finally, it appears the need to reduce our impact on the planet, and the concept of sustainability, has begun to establish itself as vital for business (as well as the small matter of the future of the human race).

The challenge is huge and our response has, well, if we’re honest, not great. There are some tricky issues to be tackled, but lots of ideas on how we can help the planet.

  1. Eat less (and better) meat and dairy…farming animals is one of the biggest contributors to climate change.
  2. Avoid palm oil.
  3. Reduce food waste.
  4. Buy less stuff.
  5. Use good wood.
  6. Reduce plastic pollution.
  7. Eat less (and better) fish.
  8. Share and donate.

The big picture

The UK Government has all manner of aspirations from delivering Net Zero carbon buildings to the sustainable use inland waterways.

As part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) signed up to by all UN Member States in 2015, the UK is committed to some huge plans, including

By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities.

Shockingly, says social progress expert Michael Green, these goals can be achieved, but not with business as usual.

Playing our part

For our own business, we are striving to make as low an impact on the environment as possible.

Our environmental policy outlines our approach to managing and reducing our operational impacts and provides the framework for our environmental targets.

Our customers, suppliers and employees expect us to minimise our impact, and as a responsible business whose operations ultimately rely on natural resources, we want to do everything we can. So, becoming a low carbon business is important to our future success.

Most of our operational impact comes from carbon emissions generated by business travel and the use of energy. We are ourselves early adopters of electric vehicles and are replacing our own service vans to electric at the earliest opportunity. Additionally, we work to reduce the resources that we consume in our operations, and the waste we generate.

Helping others

We have been switching people to battery power for 20 years and have more than 8 years experience with Lithium Ion.

Switching to electric power is one of the main ways in which we can help you reduce your ‘carbon tyreprint‘.

Another is in helping you to get the most you can from the space you already have.

With our help, you may not only reduce carbon and costs, but also be able to get rid of temporary outside storage provision, maximise a new building’s potential, extend the life of your existing warehouse or even add 1,000 additional pallet locations.


We provide customers with a full suite of equipment and support services. Here’s some of our most popular options…
