At Toll, we are committed to taking actions that reduce our carbon footprint and, in turn, help our customers reduce theirs. As a global logistics company we know that we have a role to play in addressing environmental challenges. Our sustainability and emissions programs helps Toll deliver best practice environmental outcomes and provide our customers with innovative options to improve the sustainability of their supply chain.
At Toll, we are committed to supporting and increasing proactive and sustainable environmental performance whilst minimising the impacts to our people and the environment. We are using our Health, Safety and Environmental Management System (HSEMS) to help us better understand our environmental risks and drive environmental awareness and knowledge across our business and with our customers.
As sustainability best practice adapts and evolves, so do we. Toll regularly identifies environmental risks and processes across our organisation and driving supporting new ways of doing things to reduce these. Our people have access to training on environmental improvements and requirements and we provide them with awareness and visibility of sustainability initiatives across Toll Group.
In 2010 Toll launched its Greenhouse Gas and Energy program “Smarter Green” which set targets to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Intensity by 20% by the end of 2020 against a FY10 baseline. This work is delivering improved environmental performance, risk reduction and contributing to improved operating economics across the group. We do this through our continuous improvement programs, investment in new fleet and technology along with specific, program-based campaigns to achieve these outcomes. Through Smarter Green Toll has developed a number of initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce pollutant load and improve energy efficiency, these include
