As part of its commitment to reduce its carbon footprint, Summerleaze Limited, the Maidenhead based renewable energy company, aggregate supplier and the biggest transport agency in Maidenhead, has announced that it has invested in a fleet of low emission lorries.

Summerleaze delivers aggregates within a 25 mile radius of its base on Summerleaze Road and the new lorries will be substantially more environmental friendly than the previous fleet.

Transport Manager Steve Cook, explains:

‘Currently the legal requirement for European emission standards is a Euro 5 engine. We’ve invested in Euro 6 engines which reduce sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and diesel particulate matter emissions as well as CO2 so they are less harmful to the environment.

‘We’ve also invested in a lower nearside door window as well as a four camera safety system including a cyclist side camera which will help drivers see cyclists when turning left and ensures that there are no blind spots, making road travel safer for all road users.’

Summerleaze is a member of The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), a voluntary accreditation scheme which promotes best practice for commercial vehicle operators.

Steve continues:

‘The new lorries are an investment in the future of Maidenhead and Berkshire and we will continue to ensure we do all we can to adopt the most environmentally friendly and safe work practices for the benefit of future generations.’
