G4S joins major fleet carbon reduction scheme

G4S has announced its participation in the Freight Transport Association’s (FTA) Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS).

Launched this month, the voluntary scheme is an initiative resulting from the Government’s challenge to businesses to respond to national and international climate change targets.

It aims 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 more than 3,000 vehicles across the businesses.

John Lennox, of G4S Cash Solutions and a National Council member of the FTA, said: “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.”
