Global Logistics Management have a commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
Although the motor sports and air freight industries have a highly visible perceived impact on the environment GLM recognise that proper environmental standards begin at home.
GLM continue to improve their environmental management in recycling, renewable materials, solar energy and a reduction in their carbon footprint.
Already all GLM’s road fleet have the lowest carbon emissions in their respective classes and with the continuing improvements in engine and fuel efficiency this will only improve.
As for the air freight industry there is also still a long way to go but it’s worth noting note that flying services (freight and passengers) accounts for 2% of global CO2 emmissions. In addition, by 2020 the airline industry will be 25% more efficient and already aircraft are 50% quieter than just 10 years ago.
See below for some further statistics:
This could reach 3% by 2050. (Working Group III Report, IPCC May 2007, p. 6)
