XPO said it had achieved carbon neutrality at its Crick distribution hub for the second year running.

As a result, it is cutting the number of carbon offsets required to maintain its carbon neutral status.

The HQ site first achieved carbon neutral certification in July 2023, six months ahead of schedule and it reduced the site’s carbon intensity by 24% through efforts such as the use of clean energy, waste reduction and expansion of XPO’s fleet of electric company cars.

It switched to a Tier 1 energy supply using wind, solar and hydro power, replaced all lighting with LEDs and worked with the site’s waste contractor to achieve zero waste to landfill.

Dan Myers, XPO Logistics MD for the UK and Ireland, said: “With a strong commitment to operate ethically and sustainably, our team’s efforts over the last 12 months have delivered measurable improvements in our environmental performance.

“We have come a long way together, but there is still much to do.”
