G4S to participate in voluntary carbon reduction scheme
The voluntary scheme has been launched this month following the Government’s challenge to businesses to respond to national and international climate change targets. The scheme is intended to provide a cost-effective means of capturing progress that individual businesses make in tracking and reducing fuel usage and consolidating the data into a collective picture with other logistics industry operators within FTA membership.
The G4S fleet vehicles currently participating in this scheme include cash in transit vehicles from its Cash Solutions business, Care & Justice’s Detention & Escorting vehicles and Integrated Services logistics vehicles. The entire fleet consists of some 3,000 plus vehicles across the businesses.
John Lennox of G4S Cash Solutions, which is a National Council member of the FTA, commented: 'We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and have already implemented a number of successful initiatives across the G4S fleet to reduce environmental impact. It is a continuing focus for our business and trials of new technologies are ongoing. Being a member of the LCRS means that we can really focus in on this important issue and we are delighted to be associated with the FTA’s excellent work.'
