International energy logistics provider Peterson, has signed up as an early member of the Pawprint Pioneer Programme as part of its commitment to empower all of its UK employees to fight climate change.
Pawprint is an online tool and app, which enables users to measure, understand and reduce their carbon footprint from the palm of their hand.
Peterson will make Pawprint available to all their UK employees, enabling them to use the tool to understand and manage small changes in their lifestyle that can help to fight climate change.
Erwin Kooij, CEO at Peterson, says, “We are proud to be part of the Pawprint Pioneer Programme. It’s important to us that we stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients, supporting them as they look to deliver their carbon reduction objectives. Across our business we are challenging each and every action we take to ensure we are doing everything we can to minimise our emissions.”
“An important element of this is engaging with our employees to challenge their own behaviours around sustainability and giving them the ability to measure, understand and reduce their footprint. We believe Pawprint is the ideal tool to enable that,” continues Kooij.
Christian Arno, CEO at Pawprint, adds, “Peterson is a company that has long been renowned for being innovative and their commitment to taking the lead in fighting climate change by engaging all of their employees on sustainability really highlights this. Pawprint combines the latest in technology, behavioural science and carbon data making it possible for all employees, no matter their role, to find ways of reducing their own carbon footprint that works personally for them.”
The introduction of Pawprint to the business is just one element of Peterson’s activity to minimise their emissions. Through their Lighthouse technology suite, and their vessel pooling and sharing models, Peterson already drive out excesses across the supply chain, by minimising the movement of goods across locations, and reducing carbon emissions for both themselves and their clients.
Earlier this year Peterson’s Edzell site was certified as carbon neutral under the PAS 2060 accreditation, with other sites across the company targeted to achieve the same throughout 2021 and 2022.
Further initiatives include the use of alternative energy across Peterson sites and the use of assets powered by alternative energy sources, such as electric forklifts and cranes, and electric and hydrogen powered trucks.
