Today we are launching our One Million Miles Challenge to all drivers across the business. The aim is to reduce our total annual mileage by one million miles during 2020, reducing our carbon output by over 150 Tonnes.
Drivers of all company vehicles are encouraged to get involved and do their bit. Whilst the target sounds challenging, reducing our monthly, weekly and daily journeys by a small amount, we can achieve this goal.
In 2019, Altrad Services vehicles covered 12.8 million miles, emitting over 2,000 tonnes of CO2. Small changes can make a large difference. For example, buying lunch on the way to work will help stop short trips out at lunchtime. A simple two mile daily trip to the sandwich shop will save over 500 miles per year. Saving you money and reducing our carbon footprint.
Our Fleet Services team will be working with sites and regions to identify better, more practical solutions for employee mobility, one way in which we are looking to do this is the introduction of electric vehicles across our business.
