Our Approach

We understand the importance of protecting the environment we live and work in. We strive to research and develop sustainable transport solutions for all our customers.

We have dedicated environmental teams set up across the business working on environmental projects. We continue to be at the forefront of Sustainable development through our "Centre for Sustainability" and "Strategic Environmental Assessment" initiatives.

We are heavily involved in projects for clients based upon fuel economy and reducing CO2 emissions as well as topical issues including climate change. We continue to undertake environmental projects that explore the use of recycled materials for roads and sustainable construction.

TRL operate a "green travel scheme" at our head office. Staff are encouraged to car share, cycle, walk, take public transport or motorcycle to work. Those who choose these modes of transport are recognised and rewarded internally.

TRL and CarShare Online are members of ACT and registered controllers under the data protection act.
