Each quarter, for every customer ordering online, AFI will offset 200% of the emissions associated with the delivery of their machine by investing in renewable energy offset programmes. AFI will similarly invest in offsetting 100% of the emissions generated by collection for each machine off-hired online.
Paul Roberts, CFO at AFI, said: “We’re proud to now add our Carbon Offsetting Scheme. Customers who hire and off-hire online with AFI are assured that 150% of the environmental impact of their deliveries and collections with us is offset. The Carbon Offsetting Scheme enhances our position as a sustainable business in the UK powered access rental sector.”
“Our success as a business comes not just from our financial performance but also from our recognition of our responsibilities to our team, the environment and the communities in which we operate.
“We will continue to encourage stakeholders across our workforce, customers, suppliers and local communities to recognise our role in improving our impact on the world. In response to ongoing customer demand, we will continue to make significant investments across our entire fleet of green-powered access machines.”
