New delivery vehicles for Enviromat

Harrowden aims to reduce its transport footprint. Our Enviromat Sedum Matting is generally considered to be quite an eco-friendly product. So, with new vehicles on order we took the opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint of our delivery vehicles.

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) that are generated by our actions.

The average carbon footprint for a person in the United States is 16 tons, one of the highest rates in the world. Globally, the average carbon footprint is closer to 4 tons

So, Harrowden has taken delivery of four DAF XF105 460 ATe lorries.  DAF claims that these vehicles can achieve a 2-3% reduction in fuel consumption and have greatly reduced carbon emissions. We believe we can make a difference by making small changes to our actions. These can be as simple as eating less meat or taking fewer flights. Try line drying your clothes – we can start to make a big difference.

Every truck needs a driver and so we are also pleased to welcome  Alan, Alvin, Paul and Martin to the team.   Alan is well known to us and our customers, as he’s joined us from E&SJ Walpole. The other three boys are experienced drivers but entirely new to the company.

We’re proud to be embracing new technology which will help reduce our transport footprint –

we’re keen to minimise our environmental impact and that means thinking about what happens off the farm as well as managing wildlife habitat and making best use of resources on the land and in the office”.
