5th Consecutive Gold Ecovadis Rating for Howard Tenens Logistics

Howard Tenens Logistics, a quality focused, independent family business delivering mutual value through great people, collaboration and technology has been awarded a Gold EcoVadis Medal in recognition of sustainability achievement for the fifth year in a row. This places Tenens in the top five percent of companies assessed.

EcoVadis, ‘the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings’ has published the gold rating for Howard Tenens Logistics based on four key performance areas: environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. The objective of the EcoVadis Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating methodology is to measure the quality of a company’s CSR management system through its policies, actions, and results.

The high score recognised the work on sustainability issues Howard Tenens has introduced to date. These include environmental policies, carbon reporting, CO2 reduction initiatives on transport, waste recycling, measures to reduce energy consumption and processes and training to reduce environmental impacts. This work all plays a part in Howard Tenens Logistics’ carbon reduction strategy.

“We are delighted to be awarded Gold for the fifth year running. It is highly rewarding to see that our environmental initiatives and impacts have been recognised. We have embraced carbon reduction initiatives with evolutionary steps that have seen our business invest in dual-fuel CNG trucks, bioLPG in our forklift trucks, dedicated CNG trucks, fuel-efficient tyres, green energy supply, solar photovoltaic panels, LED/PIR lighting and recycling of waste. More recently, we have made significant strides on our carbon reduction journey by introducing Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) in place of diesel. There is still a way to go on our environmental journey, but we are fully committed to achieving net-zero as soon as practicable and will continue to drive forward decarbonisation across the business.”

Karl Hodgkinson, Managing Director at Howard Tenens Logistics
