Arena has taken another big step to reduce carbon emissions by investing in 23 Mitsubishi electric forklift trucks for our warehouses.
The new trucks – which replace an ageing diesel and LPG fleet – will reduce our carbon emissions by 138 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. This equates to 138 passengers on a return flight from Paris to New York, or someone driving from London to Edinburgh 1,380 times.
The trucks also bring several new safety benefits. They will not operate unless seatbelt is worn, speed and acceleration are restricted to a safe speed without affecting productivity and performance and, for security, a personal pin code and key is required to operate them.
Sustainability remains a key commitment for Arena and will continue to be at the heart of everything we do moving forward.
