Destination Green

Destination Green is way of reducing its negative impact on the environment. There are a number of ways we do this.

The Destination Green program involves measurement of environmental maturity. Areas that are measured in Engagement, Water, Waste, Reporting, Governance, Environmental Management System, Modal Shift, Energy, Pollution and Supply Chain. In the last few years we have improved our level of maturity from performer status to a leader status – which is all thanks to improvement across the business.

Targets have been set to help us reach Destination Green.

Another way is by managing our environmental risk through the implementation of Environmental & Energy Management Systems.

The Environmental & Energy Management System is a collection of policies and standards which comply too international standards, ISO 50001:2018 and ISO 14001:2015. The standards provides a systematic way to manage the businesses significant environmental risks.

One of our main location, Birmingham Lampblock, where a majority of our on-board operational staff are based has been awarded a green building award. It has solar panels on the roof. SOLARflo converts solar energy into heat to generate hot water, reducing carbon dioxide emissions – one of the key greenhouse gasses contributing to climate change and global warming.

We also have an online learning module which is being updated & will be available to all staff.

Waste Segregation is available at CrossCountry staff locations – this includes the following - We also recycle old uniforms into car seats!
