“As one of the largest teaching hospitals in the country we are constantly striving to make our fleet more sustainable to help us reach our targets for reducing CO² emissions and costs. We are thrilled to have been awarded 4 stars for our current transport operation; ECO Stars has enabled us to benchmark our fleet vehicles and management systems, and has made recommendations for further improvement.”

With help from the scheme and the upgrading of our fleet, fuel monitoring and on-going training we are proud to have been awarded 5 Stars, from our original 4 Stars. I would advise any fleet operator to become a member of the scheme.

ECO Stars provides a bench mark which can be developed over months and years as we follow the Road Map of recommendations we were given.

Colin Lawson Transport decided to join ECO Stars to supplement and assist us in our ever growing environmental responsibility. Through our membership we are able to share best practice and learn what others in our industry are doing to reduce the environmental impact as a result of our daily operations.
Our 4 star rating whilst good, demonstrates that we still have room for improvement and we hope that we will shortly achieve a 5 star rating which is both good for us as a business and also ultimately good for the environment.

The team at John Mitchell believe that ECO Stars membership is invaluable, the principles it is run by and the contacts made are embraced by our team. The biggest benefit we have seen is the networking opportunities, we have learned many good things based on other people’s experiences, the cheapest way to learn.
