Managing environmental risk
We continue to assess environmental risk in all parts of our business. We are working to manage these risks in line with our values, to cause no harm to people or place.
We implement preventative measures to avoid spill incidents and, if a spill does occur, ensure an immediate response to provide scene containment and recovery.
Major accident prevention
At top-tier COMAH site operator, we adhere to stringent regulations designed to prevent accidents and limit their consequences for people and the environment.
We comply with the Environmental Agency's containment policy.
All our drivers undertake extensive, ongoing training and assessment. This includes safe and defensive driving and correct loading and delivery procedures. Maintenance and monitoring programmes are in place for trucks and equipment to ensure they remain in good condition.More on driver training >
Customer site safety

Our drivers have extensive training on spill containment and are equipped to respond appropriately in the event of an incident at a third party site.
Reducing the environmental
impact of our activities
We vet our choice of ships according to their carbon emissions.
We manufacture biodiesel from waste raw materials, rather than virgin vegetable oils, giving higher carbon savings and reducing land-use impacts.
Our biodiesel manufacturing facilities are ISO 14001 certified, underpinning our commitment to continuous environmental improvement.
We work to improve the fuel efficiency of our haulage operations by:
Investing in new, more fuel efficient vehicles.
Training drivers in fuel efficient driving.
Tracking fuel consumption and driving styles across our operations.
