NOLAN : Company - Sustainability

Company

Sustainability


Continuous improvement is characteristic of all Nolan’s activities. We recognise that the incorrect use of our resources will increase their negative impact on the environment and we are committed to minimising this effect.


EQUIPMENT

We are working towards a Euro 6 compliant fleet which will reduce our NOx and PM output whilst reducing carbon output. We are also looking to invest in fully-electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric Nikola trucks.

FUEL

Our goal is to achieve a carbon neutral supply chain, we use premium fuels from suppliers which commit to a carbon neutral strategy, the fuel we use has a minimum 10% fuel from a carbon neutral source, this percentage increases annually. Our ultimate goal is to power our vehicles using a hydrogen and electric drivetrain as technology evolves and develop.

We trialed HVO in South Wales and this demonstrated that it is an option that we can explore further in our journey to net-zero

DRIVER

All drivers receive a comprehensive induction with safety, compliance and fuel-efficient driving at its core. Continued professional development is provided in the form of the LoCity driver CPC training and group e-learning which is conducted inhouse at our training academy along with practical on-road training.

WAREHOUSE

Our state-of-the-art warehouses are built to exceed the latest building and energy efficiency standards with smart LED lighting and temperature management to ensure that product is stored at the optimal temperature and humidity with minimal energy usage. State of the art Warehouse Management System custom designed by Jungheinrich.

SUPPLY CHAIN

We insist that our industry partners share our values and aspirations. Assessing the whole logistical process is key.

SYSTEMS
