Freight People

At Freight People, we’re working to transform the way organisations work with freight, turning it into a competitive differentiator for your business. We started out in 1987 helping organisations choose the best freight carrier for the right goods at the best price and have since grown steadily to become a trusted, technology driven freight and logistics broker with a dream to also drive carbon neutrality across our operations.

“We want to help solve the challenge of climate change and sustainability. The first step to do this, is to stop contributing to the problem. The next, to start fixing the damage already done.”

Type of certification

Organisation.

How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

Since August 2021.

Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?

Climate change is extremely important to the owners of our business, and our entire team. If we don't have a healthy planet, we don't have a sustainable way of life for our kids and future generations. We want to help solve the challenge of climate change and sustainability. The first step to do this, is to stop contributing to the problem. The next, to start fixing the damage already done.

What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

Saving the planet! Our staff are highly engaged in helping reduce waste and improve the environment. The journey we have been on to get carbon neutral has been very rewarding and informative for all.

What offset project do you support?

A wind power project in India.

How can your customers support you?

Hopefully we can influence more people to take an interest in the environment, and commit to achieving carbon neutrality. We need everyone to be focusing on making changes to their behaviour, if we want to improve the environment.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

Working on influencing our suppliers to improve their carbon usage. Example, helping carbon impact be more visible and when choosing a freight carrier.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

The journey to carbon neutrality has been extremely valuable, so including our team on this journey was very rewarding. Our team now understands far more about the impact of their actions, and how simple changes can have big impacts on the environment.
