Brakes Group were delighted to win the Environmentally Friendly Logistics Award last year. Brakes make over 22,000 food deliveries a week, across the UK. The logistics and transport initiatives we have in place to reduce our fuel consumption have contributed to us achieving a 30%* reduction in carbon emissions since 2006, beating our 25% target nearly a year early. We also work actively with industry partners on supply chain delivery collaborations to reduce road miles.
Our customers, and their consumers, demand and expect us to make our operations as environmentally efficient as possible, and our teams are fully engaged across our network to make this happen. This award not only provides a reward for the hard work of our teams, but reassurance for our customers that they are being served by a leader in protecting tomorrow, today.
