Our goal to be a Carbon Nuetral Company
I'm happy to announce from November 2019 we pledge to be an environmentally conscious company and take positive steps towards creating less emissions and impact on the environment during our transfers in the future
and offsetting what we cannot avoid in the present.
Offsetting is just part of our long-term environmental strategy which will
see us work hard to reduce our impact on the environment wherever we can. Currently our aim is to offset our Co2 emissions produced by our transfer vehicles and even extending to sub-contractor vehicles.
In short: Transfers-UK will offset the Co2 produced for EVERY transfer booked through us - at NO EXTRA COST to the customer from this date forward.
How does this work?...We are working with a company Carbon Footprint Ltd. who calculate our monthly
Co2 emissions and offset them with contributions to carbon saving projects in the U.K and around the world.
The projects we will be contributing to cover several aspects, from tree planting here in the U.K, funding renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and also projects that have huge social
and community benefits. Each project comes under strict observation to be sure they prove to be CER's Carbon Emission Reduction products and compliant to Kyoto protocol. They are verified by the United Nations.
We will also be aiming to fund Gold Standard VER (Verified Emission Reduction) projects to provide additional social and community benefits in addition to high quality carbon offsetting.
Here is list of some projects Carbon Footprint Ltd. currently help:
UK Tree Planting + Brazil Reducing Deforestation
Portel-Pará Deforestation (REDD)
NativeEnergy Clean Water Programme Central America
Borehole Rehabilitation Project in Uganda
and many many more...
Carbon Footprint Ltd. portfolio of carbon offset projects focuses on high quality using Certified Emission Reductions (CERs), Gold Standard CERs, Gold Standard Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) and Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) certified credits.
All of their projects meet the stringent requirements of the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) for Carbon Offsetting.
Is this all we can do? Of course not, our long term objective is working towards being 'Carbon Positive' and over compensate the Co2 figures and offset (which we are doing now). We also will be replacing our vehicles
with more planet friendly versions - without compromising quality, safety or comfort.
We also use Shell Go+ fuel, Shell currently are offsetting the fuel their Go+ customers are buying and like us using a portfolio of green investments around the globe.
Our office and admin work is completely Paperless.
We will continue to update this page with any new developments and improvements made. As a company we are currently offsetting approximately 2 tons of carbon to every 1 ton created, a small drop in the ocean I agree however
at this point I can only find a few transfer companies in the U.K taking these steps, hopefully within the next few years the other chauffeur,transfer and taxi companies will follow and the positive change
in direction will take place.
We are always looking for ways to improve not only our carbon impact but always looking to improve the services we offer. If you have any help or suggestions on any further steps we can take
please feel free to contact us.
We come highly recommended!

Child and Baby safety seats information
By LAW if travelling with children in a private hire licenced vehicle you do not have to use a car seat. HOWEVER! as a company we never settle with providing just the basics or minimum requirements, thats not our way.
We are one of only a few companies to provide any age child seat and any amount of them! If you have 7 kids then we will provide the seats on request and the best part is these are supplied for use FREE OF CHARGE! (can you believe other hire firms actually charge extra to protect your childs safety!)It's a perfectly acceptable understanding that every parent wants to protect thier child from risk of injury. Please don't accept any less from another company. Safety of our passengers is paramount to us, young or old we look after you and your family from start to finish. If you require advice on car seats or need to use one then please ask when booking (we do not carry them on board normally only on request)
