18 Months Since Mandatory Carbon Reporting, Midland Pallet Trucks Urges Businesses to Boost ‘Green’ Credentials Further

It’s been 18 months since new mandatory carbon reporting came into play for UK businesses – and organisations all over the country have made great strides in reducing their CO2 and GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. But there is always room for improvement, especially when it comes to being environmentally-friendly, and one of the UK’s leading providers of hand pallet trucks and manual handling equipment is helping businesses to decrease their carbon emissions further and stay on the right side of the new legislation in their yearly reports.

Midland Pallet Trucks is one of the country’s premier suppliers of manual handling solutions that are great for cutting down on carbon emissions. Pump trucks, lift tables and sack trucks are great ways to increase the productivity and efficiency of a business without bringing in fuel-guzzling equipment that can send those carbon figures rocketing – and Midland Pallet Trucks has a comprehensive range to suit every business’ needs.

Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says, “Many businesses across the UK will have been affected when the mandatory carbon reporting rules came into play 18 months ago, and it may have come as a surprise to some businesses to see just how high their emissions were. With a global focus on reducing carbon footprints and being more eco-conscious, it’s important for all businesses, not just those mandated by the government, to keep one eye on their ‘green’ credentials.”

He adds, “Our range of hand pallet trucks and other manual handling options offer a great solution for businesses that want to boost productivity without bringing in equipment that creates harmful emissions. Powered entirely by the movements of the operators, our range of pump trucks are a sensible investment at a time when eco-friendly policies are increasing and businesses are becoming more focused on minimising their impact on the environment.”

With or without the mandatory carbon reporting rules, businesses should strive to reduce emissions across the board. Carbon taxes and fuel can add up to pretty hefty bills for businesses on a budget, and more and more consumers and businesses are now choosing to work exclusively with eco-friendly businesses in order to minimise their own footprints.

By investing in equipment like lightweight pallet trucks and other manual handling apparatus, businesses are making a commitment to eco-friendly operations. These trucks require no extra fuel or power to function to their highest potential – just a hardworking operator and regular maintenance. Robust, hardwearing and long-lasting, the trucks will last businesses for many years, ensuring that they remain eco-conscious and ‘green’ for as long as possible.
