Rawley Plant becomes 100th member of the Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme28 July 2014

Construction plant hire company Rawley Plant has become the one hundredth member of the Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS).

LCRS is managed by the Freight Transport Association and, with the latest addition, its members now operate more than 74,000 commercial vehicles between them.

"As members of FORS [Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme] and holders of ISO 140001, environmental concerns are important to us and, despite our small size, we feel that we have a part to play," says Howard Rawley, Rawley Plant's managing director.

LCRS was established to encourage UK operators to cut carbon emissions and publicise the role they play towards achieving national greenhouse gas reduction targets.

A recent report, 'Logistics Carbon Review 2014', revealed the scheme is on track to achieve its emission targets by the end of this year – one year ahead of schedule.

LCRS is free to join and FTA is urging smaller operators, in particular, to join up to ensure the membership is representative of the sector.
