Carey Environmental Impact

Carey England Limited Environmental Statement

In the pursuit of our mission to provide world-class chauffeur driven services, Carey England Limited recognises that in our day-to-day operations we inevitably impact the environment in a number of ways. As a consequence, the management are committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance and prevention of pollution wherever possible.

Environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice will be regarded as setting the minimum standards of environmental performance.

Employee involvement in environmental matters is encouraged at all levels and is promoted through training, communications and a constant reappraisal of working methods and techniques.

In particular Carey is involved in the following initiatives:

Chauffeur Training

As part of Carey's industry-leading chauffeur training and certification program, Carey instructs its chauffeurs on the latest and most efficient driving techniques. This is designed to make the most of the energy used by the vehicle and reduces fuel consumption. Controlled studies conducted by Carey's in-house training team have shown that fuel and emission savings of over 10% are achieved through these techniques. 

Vehicle Acquisition

Carey continues to review its fleet vehicles in line with our Environmental objectives. We currently have 6 Mercedes E-Class Hybrid in our fleet and 17 Toyota Prius for Embarque.

Regular maintenance of our vehicle fleet ensures maximum utilisation to achieve optimum efficiency (all new vehicle acquisitions are to Euro 5 standard). Carey works closely with Mercedes Benz whose Bluetec system actively reduces pollutant emissions. We currently have 200 vehicles in our fleet, with the Bluetec system.

Reduce our Carbon Footprint to Net Zero

The CarbonNeutral Company is a world-leading provider of carbon reduction solutions, which Carey has been in partnership with since 2008. Working with The CarbonNeutral Company, we have invested in carefully selected green projects around the world that make a real difference. Being a global company, it is important to Carey that we contribute to not only improving our environment but also making a difference to the lives of others living in diverse conditions.

We currently support the following projects:

Improved Cookstove Project, Mexico – After supporting one of the first carbon projects in Zambia, we have now moved on to support the cookstove project in Mexico. Globally, nearly three billion people use solid fuels on traditional stoves or open fires for cooking and space heating. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 estimates that exposure to smoke from cooking is the fourth worst risk factor for diseases in developing countries. Based in the country’s poorest rural states, the project makes efficient cookstoves affordable to low-income households, reducing fuel use by as much as 60% and reducing exposure to harmful indoor air pollution. 

One water – we provide One water in all our vehicles as the chosen complimentary water. One donates all its profits to the building of roundabout powered Play Pumps™ in African villages that have no easy access to clean drinking water.  In September 2006 Play Pumps™ International was pledged support at the Clinton Global Initiative by the US government, The Case Foundation and The MCJ Foundation. Carey is proud to have seen two Play Pumps™ opened in its name through our contributions; these are in South Africa and Malawi

Use of 'Ecotricity' at our UK Headquarters

In partnership with Ecotricity, 30% of our electricity supply is generated from wind turbines.  Ecotricity then invests all it’s profits into developing renewable energy sources to further increase the availability of green energy.

Reduce-Reuse-Recycle

Our major focus related to use of materials in our offices, is to reduce the use of paper, plastic and other disposable materials. Working with 'Greener World' we recycle all possible waste, thus minimising the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

All our paper and cardboard is taken to Aylesford to be pulped into recycled paper, our cans go to Cheshire to be recycled into new cans, and our plastic goes to Peterborough to be recycled into coat hangers and pens.

 

The directors and senior managers of Carey England Limited are committed to the implementation of this policy and will give full backing to all those authorised to fulfil its objectives.

Employee involvement in environmental matters is encouraged at all levels and will be promoted through training, communications and a constant reappraisal of working methods and techniques.
