To achieve this, Woodland has set a goal of a 90% reduction in emissions by 2050 compared to its 2021 baseline year. Woodland has already taken its first steps towards reducing emissions and has cut 5,789.63 metric tonnes of CO2e from its operations in 2022.
To achieve this net-zero target, Woodland Group has created a top-level roadmap of the projects and targets they are committing to internally to cut emissions from their operations alongside the changes expected in the industry. The roadmap outlines the need for engagement across the Group, as well as its network of third-party carriers. This is a working document. Woodland plans to embrace and adopt new technologies and low carbon fuels as they become available, and will continue to review, reassess, and where appropriate, add further goals to this roadmap in the coming years.
Sam Warren, Sustainability Manager at Woodland Group, commented:
“Woodland has been a long-standing advocate of sustainable supply chains and processes. With help of our carbon calculator, we have been providing visibility and awareness of transport chain emissions to our customers for the last few years. In addition, our digital services such as our supply chain management platform Woodland Online provides full visibility of the entire supply chain, allowing customers to be proactive in governing their supply chain choices and stakeholders online. I’m very pleased to be sharing this commitment publicly which backs the ongoing work we have been undertaking to cut our own carbon emissions across the Group, whilst also providing transparency and consultancy to our customers to be able to take action themselves.”
Kevin Stevens, Chairman & CEO of Woodland Group, added:
“Woodland Group was founded on a people-focussed approach and has since seen significant growth as a result of our Woodlanders embracing change, driving innovation, facilitating awareness, opportunity and development for our entire ecosystem and having a collective sense of responsibility. We believe in doing the right thing by our people, our environment, and the wider communities and I’m genuinely thrilled to see the sustainable and forward-thinking developments we’ve made over recent years and the commitment by all to continue on this journey. Our Net-Zero target is just one of the commitments to a sustainable future we’ve made as a Group, and I look forward to seeing us reach our targets and initiate positive change as we collaborate with industry stakeholders and our communities to do our part in reducing the sector’s carbon impact.”
