As a 200 year old family business we want there to be a Bibby Group providing distribution services for generations to come, as well as taking the right commercial and business approach today, which is why our commitment to the environment and ethical business practice is part of our DNA.
Our ethical policy is based on the principle that good and right business practice leads to long-term business growth.
We publish our anti-bribery policy in line with government guidance and train all our staff, from the operational, office staff through to our drivers and warehouse teams.
Given the nature of our business we take our responsibilities very seriously, and we also recognise that being smarter and more efficient with our use of fuel, numbers of journeys, and energy usage at our facilities, also translates into reduced costs for us, and a better deal for you.
As an end-to-end logistics provider 92% of our carbon footprint comes from our fleet of vehicles, which is why we continually find ways to drive up efficiencies and reduce our carbon emissions.
We are part of the FTA Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS) , which shares best practice amongst other large logistics companies like ours to find ways of minimising emissions, reporting and evaluating our performance to help us constantly improve.
The vast majority of our tractor units have telematics systems installed to help our drivers drive with maximum fuel and emissions efficiency.
With our tracking technology we have a real-time global view of our entire fleet, so we can monitor the volumes of journeys and, in particular empty runs, to find other ways of improving our efficiency.
Some facts about our environmental improvements
- Many of our drivers are SAFED trained (Safe And Fuel Efficient Driving) which helps them drive more safely and efficiently.
- All our sites work to our ISO14001-aligned Environmental Management System, monitoring our energy, water and waste.
- Energy efficient lighting has cut energy usage by up to 60% across our sites.
- 500 tonnes of CO2 reductions were achieved by updating printers and photocopiers.
- We now use 229 fewer litres of water per wash on our milk vehicle washing operations without compromising our food safety record.
- Our logistical planning experts continually look for ways to consolidate our operations and combine them with our customers’ needs to reduce the amount of under-utilisation of our fleet vehicles, increasing the number of efficient road miles and reducing emissions.
