We had a great evening at the Sage Gateshead on 29th June 2023 for the North East England Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Final.
We were delighted to be shortlisted for the “Green Business of the Year” award and to be recognised for our commitment to sustainability. Our environmental-friendly policies have had such a positive impact on our business. Not only does it set us apart from the norm within our industry, but we know we are actively doing our bit to support the future of the planet. As well as being the right thing to do, sustainability is a core part of Parkers business strategy, and we are creating brand recognition through this. We’re proud that we were the first chauffeur company in the UK to offset our carbon footprint through a government assured scheme, validated by The Woodland Trust. We’ve now planted over 6000 trees to compensate for our journeys. A benefit that is passed onto our clients seeking to reduce their own carbon footprint.
Within the last year we have heavily invested into our eco-friendly initiatives and introduced both hybrid and fully electric vehicles into our fleet, including the BMW i7, Range Rover and Mercedes Benz models. There’s no other chauffeur company in the North of England that offers a greener fleet. We strive to lead the way in our industry by having a longterm commitment to sustainability, in the hope that others will follow. Our intention is to bring focus on the environmental impact of all businesses and encourage others to use our services to offset some of their own carbon footprint. We forge strategic partnerships with like-minded companies and individuals who are also serious about making a difference to the environment.
Our business strategy is not only about delivering high standards of service with the best fleet of luxury vehicles in the North of England, but also to be a driving force in our industry to lead the way in offering customers the choice of sustainable luxury transport and providing a service with a meaningful difference.
