EAE's Environment Strategy commits us to achieving
carbon neutrality across all our operations by 2015
The Business Environment Partnership have provided us with independent
baseline figures for our carbon emissions against which we can measure
our performance and progress
Since 2009, we have reduced our emissions by over 60% through a variety
of initiatives. Our emissions will be reduced further by our phased
move towards a van fleet that is totally fuelled by bio-diesel and
planned initiatives such as the installation of solar panels on the
roof of our Loanhead warehouse.
In addition, we are working with Trees for Scotland to sponsor plantings
that will offset any carbon emissions caused by extra distribution
and merchandising activity as our business continues to grow. These
trees will mainly be planted in and around Crieff in Perthshire's
Big Tree Country.
For EAE, carbon neutrality not only makes environmental sense - it
makes business sense too. Carbon neutrality helps us to save on our
operating costs and we can pass these savings on to our clients through
increasingly competitive rates for storage, distribution and merchandising
Carbon neutrality helps to save the planet.
It also helps us to grow our business.
