Arup encourages NHS to cut CO2 emissions
A new study has suggested that the NHS creates more than 5% of the UK’s annual CO2 emissions. On a global level, healthcare generates so much CO2 that if it were a country, it would be the world’s fifth biggest polluter.
Van delivery traffic has grown faster than any other type since 2005. The “I want it now impulse” is mainly responsible for pollution and congestion in our towns and cities.
Your shipment is collected by our green courier partner and placed in a secure area on our scheduled high-speed train services we deliver direct to the centre of the city reducing both pollution and congestion with final mile delivery by our green courier partner.
