Quotes

"Rawley Plant is pleased to become the 100th member of the LCRS at a time when the drive to monitor and reduce carbon emissions has never been so important. As members of FORS and holders of ISO140001, environmental concerns are important to us and, despite our small size, we feel that we have a part to play. We have been a member of FTA since 1970 and are happy to participate in the LCRS to show that our industry can contribute to reducing carbon emissions."
"Schemes such as this are vital in order to meet challenging rail freight growth targets and any development that will improve and expand rail freight capacity is good news."
"Van drivers are an often maligned community - this first Van Excellence Van Driver of the Year event provides a perfect opportunity to recognise and celebrate some of the fantastic drivers we all share the roads with."
"It is only right that companies improve energy efficiency but we remain concerned that the ESOS could end up being a costly and burdensome exercise for businesses. Many companies affected by ESOS are also participating in the Carbon Reduction Commitment and even under scope of Mandatory Greenhouse Gas reporting obligations. Although data can be shared across reporting requirements, we remain concerned that a myriad of policies could lead to increased complication and cost."
