Our Green Mission

GreenVan is determined to have wider implications for the transport sector.

A key aspect of the strategy is to leverage the multiple benefits of GreenVan in comparison to business-as-usual—specifically, reductions in emissions and fuel demands.

GreenVan aims to create a strategy that supports business growth as well as environmental performance over the long-term for GreenVan, its partners and the communities in which it operates.

GreenVan hopes to match the environmental side of its business decision with those of the Mayor of London and work on Reduction in Traffic, Pollution, distance travelled, vehicles needed, etc feeding in to the larger goal of environment - energy - innovation. In order to make our planet a more liveable and a better place, We at GreenVan have felt that optimisation of carbon emission and fuel consumption can have a significant impact on the environment around us.

For every 1 mile that GreenVan travels, we would save for the environment an extra mile that would otherwise have been traveled reducing the fuel consumption and carbon emission by 50% taking into account the Inventory: Miles traveled

As a removals company that is into moving homes or just a few items, we have felt that we are moving emotions and memories of people in the process alos, therefore it is very important to make sure that we optimise the use of toxic fuels and keep the environment as clean as possible and the feelings intact.

Using a basket of proprietary algorithms the company seeks to revolutionize the industry by removing inefficiencies and capturing value for both customers and drivers. The distance traveled is minimised because of the route optimisation and the vehicles are kept as regionalised as possible:

We are in the works to changing the fleet to a hybrid fleet as soon as there is a release of some commercial grade vehicles. We believe this could contribute to solving problems with polluted air, preventing social decline and urban decay, and making the city healthier and more attractive.Our goal is to bring to the focus, the use of more green methods of being and thereby catering better to mother earth.

As a company endorsed by the Department of Trade & Industry, UK. The concern for the city, environment and mother-earth sits at the heart of our concern.

An excerpt that got us very concerned.“London’s air pollution is lethal and illegal, responsible for more illness and premature deaths than alcohol or obesity. Traffic congestion is rising. Greenhouse gas emissions are not on track to meet current targets, and around a million people live in fuel poverty. Green space is being lost to development. Recycling levels are the poorest in the country”

LONDON ENVIRONMENT STRATEGY

Air Quality

“The Mayor wants to dramatically reduce the number of Londoners whose lives are blighted by poor air quality.”

Low Carbon Circular Economy

Current economic models promote a linear approach to resources – take, make, use and dispose – but this is inefficient and unsustainable. London’s economic and environmental future depends on a shift to a low carbon circular economy, where as much economic value as possible is extracted from resources, through their use and reuse, before they become waste.

This shift will not only help preserve scarce resources, but offer huge opportunities for London’s businesses. In 2014/15, London’s low carbon and environmental goods and services sector generated around £30.4bn in sales, and its 10,900 businesses employed around 192,000 people.

As London makes the transition, these vital parts of London’s economy will continue to flourish. New business models, like the sharing economy, will create new jobs, and new markets will develop in areas from renewable technologies to insulation.

Making it Happen

  • Realising the full potential of London’s environment could improve the health and quality of life of all Londoners. It will make London a fairer city and an even more attractive place to do business, and will keep the city functioning well for decades to come. This strategy sets out an ambitious, integrated approach to doing so – kick-starting important action now and in the future, that will transform London’s environment.

  • The benefits of taking this approach will be enormous, but the size of the task should not be underestimated. Doing everything that is needed to realise the Mayor’s vision will require the support of national government, including through new policies and new powers and funding for London. Just as importantly local councils, businesses, community groups, and Londoners themselves will need to take action.

  • One of the core principles of this strategy is that the organisations the Mayor directly controls, and has oversight of, should lead by example. These organisations are known as the GLA group and their responsibilities include transport, policing and emergency response. The GLA group will tackle environmental challenges and spend its money responsibly – doing things the right way and setting examples for others.
