Wherever possible Chaucer Logistics seeks to recycle old, discarded or damaged furniture as part of an extensive policy to protect and enhance the environment. The company is totally committed to green issues that directly affect the Planet and to this end continually plan to meet a wide range of environmental objectives.
In order to meet these objectives Chaucer Logistics has achieved the Environmental Quality Award ISO 14001:2004. The updated 2004 standard has a greater emphasis on monitoring performance and this gives Chaucer an independent set of guidelines to follow with external audit to confirm compliance.
Chaucer has also launched a new division, ‘Chaucer Environmental Services’ which provides consulting services to customers and suppliers wishing to reduce their own carbon footprints. This service also helps them in obtaining their own ISO certification and is a 1st for the industry.
With an eye on environmental best practice and transport and logistics sustainability, Chaucer Logistics has also rolled out an initiative focused at reducing its carbon footprint by 30 percent by 2050.
Chaucer will achieve these aims by utilising those air, sea and road carriers who are actively working to reduce their own footprints and by ensuring optimum vehicle fill rates and reducing empty running through route optimisation
The company is also committed to applying reuse and recycle policies where possible, internal and external training specific to Environmental Issues, continual assessment of energy costs and the adoption of carbon offset schemes.
