Perspex Solutions has been awarded for reducing its fleet CO2 emissions

According to Fleet Evolution, companies need to prioritise creating fleet policies that work towards decreasing CO2 emissions. They say that global carbon dioxide levels are increasing at dangerous levels, reaching record highs in 2017 and are set to go higher still this year following increased fossil fuel use.

A report by Transport and Environment points out that fleet is Europe’s biggest source of CO2 and is “responsible for the emission of over a quarter of all greenhouse gases”.

Its findings also show that emissions have increased by a quarter since 1990. It says that unless emissions are brought under control national 2030 climate goals will be missed.

This award recognises the investment PDL has made in recent years to running a greener and more efficient fleet

Perspex Distribution Limited distributes sheet plastics to a range of industries including visual communication, construction and manufacturing.

Its carbon reduction has received recognition from The Energy Saving Trust which independently certified the programme.

Robert Johnson, PDL Group Compliance and Process Manager, says: “We are delighted to have received the Gold Award under Masternaut’s new CO2 certification.

“Being a distribution business, we are focused on improving standards across our fleet.  This award recognises the investment PDL has made in recent years to running a greener and more efficient fleet.  We have replaced 60% of our truck fleet in the past 18 months with new models, and we have introduced a programme of independent driver training to maintain safe and efficient driving standards.”
