We have been putting our environmental and community values into action at one of the UK's busiest beaches.

Over 60 of our people plus family members and friends took part in the first-ever Banner Beach Clean at Scarborough's South Bay. It was fabulous effort by all involved, the teams worked up and down the beach and the surrounding area and collected over 28 kgs of plastic, glass and assorted waste from the North Yorkshire beauty spot.

This was a great way to put our commitment to local communities and the natural environment into action, with the beach clean running from 11am in the morning until 3pm in the afternoon.

Our drive to make Banner's logistics operation even more environmentally friendly has taken a great step forward.

As part of our move towards a greener future and more eco-friendly service for customers, our transport fleet, Truline, has invested in 18 new, lower emission trunking fleet. The expectation is that these vehicles will deliver up to a 7% improvement in mpg. This to supplement investment last year in the delivery vehicles.

The '19 plate DAF vehicles, which feature the latest fuel and emission efficient diesel engines, will replace older vehicles in the fleet.

This one change could transform your carbon footprint

Powering off equipment at the end of each day, installing LED bulbs and minimising travel are just some steps that businesses are taking to reduce their carbon footprint 

But there’s another move that could make a big difference to many, particularly if they routinely ship out goods. Changing the way these deliveries are packaged.

Most companies are aware of logistics’ impact on the environment, because the delivery of products to customers is a major contributor to any company’s carbon footprint. Even a few delivery vans out on the road can significantly increase carbon emissions, thanks to their larger engine size and the probability they will be driven for long spells.

Doing things right in catering and hospitality is no longer just about cost and speed of delivery. It's also about our environment and health. 

Most people are now awake to the damage that single use plastic is doing to the environment and wildlife. At least eight million pieces of plastic are estimated to enter the oceans every single day, and a plastic bottle is said to last for 450 years in the marine environment. 

These breakdown into microplastics which are eaten by fish and so enter the food chain and, ultimately, our bodies.
