As part of the SPOT Group’s dedication to a greener future, it is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of its business; as such, it is pleased to announce a recent transition to 100% renewable electricity, sourced from UK wind. The move is part of SPOT’s CSR programme, which was set up to address sustainability and social impact across all levels of the business and enables it to operate in a manner that allows the people, communities and planet it interacts with to prosper.
“Our switch to renewable electricity demonstrates our commitment to responsible supply chain energy sourcing and it will provide a direct benefit to our customers by improving their supply chain sustainability and helping them meet their own environmental goals,” said SPOT CEO, Steve Horne.
In the UK, the average amount of renewable energy sources found within the commercial energy mix is 29%, with the primary energy source being gases at 41.2%. However, the SPOT Group’s new energy mix across all their sites is from 100% renewable sources, generated from offshore wind farms across the coasts of the UK; this will help deliver longer-term value and advance SPOT’s wider commitment to carbon reduction.
The SPOT Group has also heavily invested in reducing the carbon footprint of its delivery fleet.
“Delivering goods to their point-of-use is central to our service to our customers,” commented group operations director, Rick Jones, “So, we’ve taken action to dramatically reduce the environmental impact of our transport operations. In 2017, we cut our annual mileage by 1,000,000km – significantly lowering our carbon footprint. 2018 was another successful year for our green logistics fleet.”
