Reducing the Carbon Footprint in Oxford

Unipart is a member of the Oxford-based stakeholders which includes Local Government, Community Groups, University and Business organisations all working collaboratively towards the vision for a Low Carbon Oxford.

The Low Carbon Oxford strategy is a ‘bottom up’ approach relying largely on action by businesses, communities and households working individually and in collaboration within a framework of targets, monitoring and networking to share best practice.

The success of the strategy will be based on robust but simple monitoring processes and the effectiveness of our ways of collaborating.

Unipart have signed up to a Pathfinder Group of leading organisations in Oxford, who have agreed to adopt the vision and sign up to a charter and series of actions.

Unipart has a representative on the programme board and is involved in a number of key Pathfinder projects, such as:

Synergy energy saving group whose objective is sharing best practice on energy saving methods
Looking at lower carbon ways of travelling to work in Oxford
Reviewing the feasibility of a freight consolidation process for deliveries to central Oxford retailers.
