At Get Cracking Ltd, we are seriously committed to reducing our environmental impact and lowering our global footprint. Over the past 36 months, we have taken significant steps to invest in sustainable practices and technologies, demonstrating our dedication to sustainability and environmental responsibility as much as possible.
One of our major efforts to reduce our carbon emissions is through our vehicle fleet of removal trucks. We have made substantial investments in Euro 6 vehicles with very low emissions, four of which were acquired at a cost of €300,000 in the last 12 months. These vehicles meet the latest emission standards, ensuring that our transportation operations have minimal impact on air quality and contribute to lowering greenhouse gas emissions. We are continuously exploring ways to improve and upgrade our fleet.
Another critical aspect of our environmental commitment is waste management, due to the amount of packing materials we use on a daily basis, we have a great opportunity to recycle cardboard, plastic and paper. We have made significant strides in reducing the amount of waste generated by our operations. Debris from destinations services, including bubble wrap, wrapping paper, and export wrap, is now efficiently managed through state-of-the-art cardboard and plastic balers. This allows us to recycle the waste effectively, reducing our reliance on traditional waste disposal methods and minimizing our contribution to landfill waste. We are proud to work with PANDA recycling, who collect the bales of recyclable waste from our facilities every week, furthering our efforts to achieve a circular economy. In addition to these initiatives, we are continuously exploring new ways to reduce our environmental impact, such as promoting energy efficiency in our operations, conserving water, and implementing sustainable procurement practices.
We are committed to staying up to date with the latest technologies and best practices in sustainability, and we actively seek opportunities to improve our environmental performance. At Get Cracking Ltd, we understand that sustainability is a collective responsibility, and we strive to be a leader in our industry by minimizing our global footprint and promoting a more sustainable future. We are proud of the progress we have made in the past 36 months and remain committed to continuous improvement in our environmental performance.
Additionally, as part of our commitment to sustainability, we have implemented the use of specialized movers’ software called eMover, which has helped us significantly reduce paperwork in our moving jobs and streamline our operations. This digital solution has enabled us to operate more efficiently, reducing our paper consumption and minimizing our environmental impact. By embracing technological advancements that promote sustainability, we are constantly seeking innovative ways to optimize our processes while minimizing our ecological footprint. Furthermore, we actively promote environmental awareness and responsibility among our employees, partners, and customers. We provide training and education on sustainable practices, including waste reduction, energy conservation, and eco-friendly transportation options, to raise awareness and encourage environmentally responsible behaviours. We believe that everyone has a role to play in protecting our planet, and we are dedicated to fostering a culture of sustainability within our organization and beyond.
In conclusion, Get Cracking Ltd is committed to reducing our global footprint and minimizing our environmental impact. Through our investments in low-emission vehicles, state-of-the-art waste management practices, and utilization of innovative movers’ software, we are taking proactive measures to operate sustainably and promote eco-friendly practices within our industry.
We remain steadfast in our pursuit of continuous improvement in our environmental performance and will continue to seek out new opportunities to contribute positively to the health and well-being of our planet. Furthermore, as part of our sustainability efforts, we have established a partnership with a supplier of recycled moving boxes. These boxes have been previously used for importing goods into Ireland and are still in excellent condition, making them suitable for reuse. We prioritize using these recycled boxes for local moves, where we can keep costs down for our clients while also reducing the demand for new manufactured boxes.
By opting for recycled moving boxes, we can minimize our environmental impact by reducing the need for new resources and energy associated with manufacturing new boxes. Our clients moving locally have responded positively to this initiative, appreciating the opportunity to contribute to sustainability efforts while also benefiting from cost-effective solutions. At Get Cracking Ltd, we recognize that sustainable practices extend beyond our immediate operations and encompass our entire supply chain. By actively seeking out suppliers and partners who share our commitment to environmental responsibility, we strive to create a more sustainable and circular economy. In conclusion, our use of recycled moving boxes is another example of our dedication to lowering our global footprint and promoting this through our relocation service.
