ASCO has recently signed up to the UK-wide, ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme.
In joining the scheme, ASCO aims to gain further endorsement of its green credentials by adopting a more holistic approach to the performance management of its modern fleet.
The entire logistics fleet has been signed up to the scheme and has already achieved a four-star rating for efficient and clean operations – further recognition of our commitment to improving operational efficiency, reducing fuel consumption reducing vehicle emissions.
Willie Smith, Transport and Distribution Manager for ASCO UK commented, "Our team are proud to be playing our part in the ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme and more particularly of the scheme's acknowledgement of the high quality environmental fleet performance management at ASCO. Our policy of continuing to invest in a modern and efficient fleet, backed by modern working practices, ensures the impact of our business on the environment continues to reduce.
"We're proud of the contribution our fleet makes to improving air quality, but there's no room for complacency – this initiative will certainly encourage us to strive for five stars and best practice in fuel management and limitation of emissions, which will of course also reduce our costs and our environmental impact."
