Anglo sponsors the Stoddart Review
25 April 2017
The team from zero-emission business services provider Anglo hit the streets of the West End on 15th June to celebrate the first National Clean Air Day. The event strives to encourage people to reduce the amount of air pollution they create, and is particularly close to home for Anglo: it works to reduce emissions and the volume of commercial vehicles through a pioneering electric vehicle delivery solution.
Anglo’s team aimed to raise awareness of the startling facts behind air pollution, including that London exceeded its annual quota of pollution in just 5 days this year, and that said pollution is responsible for 9,500 deaths in the capital every year.
Staff handed out recycled goodies to those living in, working in and visiting London’s West End, from Bond Street through to Green Park. Most importantly, the team engaged in conversation with passers-by about the topic, which proved to spark genuine passion in the eco-conscious. They were met, too, with a flurry of firm disbelief – a testament to how important raising awareness of air pollution really is.
Anglo’s CSR Director, Russell Hodson, said of the day:
“Our team felt that supporting National Clean Air Day was incredibly important, as every business in London is responsible for doing their bit. Our fleet of electric delivery vehicles work to actively reduce air pollution and congestion, with the aim to help London breathe easier.
“We were delighted with the outcome of the day and were happy to engage the general public in impassioned discussions. Many people echoed our understanding of the importance of reducing air pollution. If our activity made just a few people stop and think, and consider changing the way they live and work in order to start making a difference, then our efforts were absolutely worth it.”
Anglo continues to roll out its zero emission business service deliveries to organisations across the West End, chosen by partners not only for its ability to provide efficient consolidation – but also because of a revolutionary environmental attitude. An attitude that Russell Hodson and the team truly hope will begin to inspire real change in time for the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone in April 2019.
