Chaucer Logistics Environment Statement


With an eye on environmental best practice and transport and logistics sustainability, Chaucer Logistics has rolled out an initiative focused at reducing its carbon footprint by 30 percent by 2050.


Chaucer will achieve these aims through:


  • Utilising those air, sea and road carriers who are actively working to reduce their own footprints.
  • Ensuring vehicle fill rates and reduce empty running through route optimization
  • Applying the three R's, (Reduce, reuse, recycle)
  • Internal and external training specific to Environmental Issues
  • Continual assessment of energy costs
  • Carbon offset schemes


In order to ensure that we meet these objectives and continually review our plan, Chaucer Logistics has achieved the Environmental Quality Award ISO 14001:2004. The updated 2004 standard has a greater emphasis on monitoring performance and this gives Chaucer an independent set of guidelines to follow with external audit to confirm compliance.


Chaucer has also launched a new division, 'Chaucer Environmental Services' which provides consulting services to customers and suppliers wishing to reduce their own carbon footprints. This service also helps them in obtaining their own ISO certification and is a 1st for the industry.
