Biodiversity

With the exception of logistics operations on roads in southern Africa and on inland waterways in Europe that cross biodiversityrich habitats, none of our primary operations or facilities significantly impact is situated in such habitats.

Biodiversity impacts associated with the use of internal combustion engines in ships and automobiles as well as the use of aircraft are not measured. The group is aware of the potential impact of spillages of products carried for reward and takes appropriate measures to minimise related risks. These include compliance with local environmental and related legislation as well as internal systems of control appropriate to the materials transported such as route planning to divert dangerous materials being transported around sensitive or high risk areas.

We are committed to promoting responsible integrated land use management and biodiversity conservation by applying a precautionary approach during all phases of our operations, including business closures. We consider the impact of our operations on local landscapes across the life span of a site, from initial occupation to closure.
