SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability & The Environment

As a company, our commitment to a healthy environment extends beyond the plants we bring to offices.

ClimateEQ has awarded our Director, Daniel Foster and Chief Operations Officer, Katie Lainton as Carbon Literate for meeting all of the requirements of the Carbon Literacy Standard. Funky Yukka and our team have made our sustainability pledges, both personally and professionally. Our pledge is to be NetZero by 2035. 

As a business, we embrace sustainability with every product and practice.

Here's how our choices regarding transportation significantly reduces our carbon footprint:

Utilising Public Transport:

  • Reduced Emissions: Our Technicians use public transport to deliver maintenance services, this significantly decreases our overall carbon footprint.

  • Traffic Congestion Relief: Fewer Funky Yukka vehicles on the road mean less traffic congestion. This translates to reduced emissions from idling vehicles and smoother commutes for everyone.

  • Improved Air Quality: By promoting public transport, Funky Yukka contributes to cleaner air in London. This benefits not only their employees but also the overall health of the city.

Embracing Bicycles:

  • Zero-Emission Transportation: Bicycles are a fantastic zero-emission mode of transport.

  • We have provided our employees with bicycles and encourage the use for health benefits both physically and environmentally. We foster and nurture health and wellbeing, after all, healthy employees are more productive, engaged, and loyal.

  • Positive Company Image: Our commitment to sustainable practices resonate with our customers. If you are not already looking at the carbon footprint of your own business, we would be delighted to encourage you with the process.

Additional Considerations:

  • Optimiing Delivery Routes: Funky Yukka can optimize delivery routes for plant installations or maintenance visits to minimize travel distances and fuel consumption.

  • Electric Vehicles: As technology advances, we have incorporated electric vehicles into our fleet for situations where public transport or cycling isn't feasible.

By adopting these practices, Funky Yukka demonstrates our commitment to environmental responsibility. Our focus on sustainable transportation aligns perfectly with the well-being focus of the core business, creating a holistic approach to a healthy planet and a healthy work environment.

Our Pledge

We are working towards being a Net Zero Business by 2035. We have implemented many changes to the business to reduce our CO2 output, such as:

We use a GPS Job Tracking system to order the routes of our technicians to ensure their days are as smooth and efficient as possible, whilst most importantly, avoiding excess travel and reducing CO2 output.

Our technicians use public transport and bicycles to attend sites where possible.

Our director and chief operations manager have both recently attended a Carbon Literacy Training Course to find more techniques and approaches to reduce our carbon footprint.
