Environmental Policy – Statement and Initiatives

At WA Freight Group, we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations.

To achieve our objective, WA Freight Group will:

  • Ensure that environmental awareness is included into its business planning, process improvement and operational disciplines;
  • Ensure compliance with all environmental regulations;
  • Promote efficiency and reduce waste across the organisation;
  • Provide accurate reporting to the authorities, the community, our shareholders and employees regarding our environmental performance;
  • Invest, wherever appropriate, in an asset base and the systems and processes which reduce energy consumption and minimise carbon emissions.

As a provider of transport services, WA Freight Group, has a key focus on reducing carbon emissions and improving energy consumption across its extended transport fleet through:

  • The up-grading of its fleet, over time, to Euro4 and Euro5 prime movers which have EGR in-built emissions reductions systems;
  • Investment in aerodynamically designed trailers to reduce emissions
  • Planning of all routes to ensure trips are completed in an optimum manner requiring the least driving time and lowest emissions;
  • Monitoring and enforcing speed limits to ensure that fuel consumption is optimised;
  • Ensuring regular programmed maintenance schedules are in place for all prime movers and trailers to ensure that all vehicles operate as efficiently as possible;
  • Reducing empty running kilometres;
  • The use of re-capped tyres and innovative processes which reduce tyre wear and increase tyre life;
  • The close monitoring and reporting of fuel consumption across the vehicle fleet

Outside our fleet operations, WA Freight Group is focussed on:

  • Reducing electricity usage , particularly within its warehouse operations;
  • Reducing its consumption of white A4 copy paper through reducing printing volumes and automating processes to eliminate the use of paper (eg EDI, electronic PODs, run sheets etc);
  • Using technological alternatives such as teleconferencing in order to minimise air travel;
  • Instituting a recycle programme for all waste, particularly workshop;
  • Water Recycling, our truck wash recycles water used.
