We are a small to medium sized enterprise offering CQC registered secure patient transport services to the NHS and Ofsted registered Children’s Home Placements. We have a wide range of carbon emissions and, as a rapidly growing business we now recognise the need to ensure we manage our carbon footprint and begin to work towards becoming carbon neutral / net zero in due course.
A key part of our commitment to this has been introducing a Carbon Reduction Plan and obtaining emissions data to ensure we have SBTi targets set by the end of 2023.
As Transport is a significant part of our carbon emissions we recognise that we will need to keep up to date with the latest in technology and developments in bio-fuel and also electrification of our fleet.
Corporate Social Value / Corporate Social Responsibility
We are committed to being a responsible employer, we have a heavy focus on providing support to local businesses wherever we can in the supply chain. We also undertake regular sponsorship events and activites to raise money for registered charities.
We intend to publish a formal Corporate Social Value programme for 2024.
Modern Day Slavery
We are committed to eradicating modern day slavery in our supply chain and are currently undergoing the MSAT Assessment. In the meanwhile, our Modern Day Slavery Policy sets out the current procedures we follow to ensure we comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
