Environmental Policy


Mission Statement:

As a ground transport solutions company, INTX accepts responsibility for the impact our operations have on both the local and global environment. We are committed to minimising this impact as far as is reasonably possible and practical.

Responsibility:

To ensure our environmental initiatives are viable, successfully implemented, and regularly reviewed, INTX appointed Rei Liddle as our Sustainability Lead.

The Sustainability Lead is responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.

Our Sustainability Lead can be contacted via email at rei@intx.co.uk.

Policy Goals:

INTX will:

  • Compliance: Comply with all environmental legislation, regulations, and codes of practice relevant to the industry sector in which it operates.
  • Supplier Engagement: Encourage suppliers to recognise and reduce the environmental impact of their products and transportation.
  • Tree Planting: Include with every hire, a donation towards planting trees and rewilding the Scottish highlands with Trees for Life.
  • Partnerships: Partner with environmental organisations and partake in accreditation programmes to ensure we are meeting our environmental goals.
  • Resource Efficiency: Make efficient use of natural resources by conserving energy and water, minimising waste, and recycling where possible.
  • Travel Reduction: Reduce the need to travel by utilising email/video conferencing and telephone where possible.
  • Sustainable Commute: Encourage employees to car share or cycle to work where possible.
  • Eco-friendly Materials: Use cleaning materials and office supplies that are as environmentally friendly as possible.
  • Employee Engagement: Encourage all employees to have consideration for the environment.

Sustainability Strategy:

  1. Transparency and Honesty:
    • We believe in being transparent and honest about our sustainability journey, acknowledging both our progress and challenges.
    • Through open communication and reporting, we aim to build trust¬† and demonstrate our commitment to continuous improvement.
  2. Engagement with SDG-Aligned Initiatives and Partnerships:
    • We actively engage with initiatives and partnerships that are in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
    • Partnerships such as Green Tourism, The Better Business Act, The Good Business Charter, and Trees for Life allow us to amplify our impact and contribute to global sustainability efforts.
  3. Measurement and Reduction of Carbon Emissions:
    • We recognise the urgent need to address climate change by reducing our carbon emissions.
    • Through rigorous measurement, tracking, and reduction strategies, we are committed to minimising our environmental footprint and mitigating climate risks. We are currently monitoring our scope three emissions for the 2024/2025 financial year with the goal of implementing a carbon reduction plan in May 2025.

Partnerships:

As part of our commitment to minimising our impact on the environment, we are supporting Trees for Life. In 2024, our goal is to plant 1000 trees in our INTX corporate grove.

We have also partnered with Green Tourism and have enrolled in their award programme. Our current award grade is Silver.

We have achieved Good Business Charter accreditation. Good Business Charter accredited organisations are committed to ten key components.

INTX joined the Better Business Act coalition in 2023, calling for a straightforward legislative solution: the Better Business Act will amend section 172 of The Companies Act to ensure that company directors are responsible for advancing the interests of shareholders alongside those of wider society and the environment.

Review:

INTX will review this policy on an annual basis, considering any changes within legislation, our organisation, and other factors.
