“The way we travel, and the way we park, is changing.”
- Kim Challis, Regional Managing Director UK & Ireland
Here at APCOA, we believe it is our responsibility to grow and develop as a company in innovative, responsible, and sustainable ways. This report is just one of the ways that we are reinforcing our commitment to our colleagues, our customers, our clients and suppliers, our communities, and the environment we work in across the UK.
Our parking activities are at the centre of mobility as either a starting or an end point of a journey with a car, bus, motorbike, bicycle, or any other form of individually owned or shared transportation. At APCOA we feel we can and must contribute to making this ecosystem as sustainable as possible. We have therefore introduced a group wide ESG initiative centred around the three main pillars
To help us drive this initiative fast forward APCOA have partnered with First Climate and have made a commitment across the Group to measure the Scope 1 2 and 3 emissions early in 2022, calculated in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. We will going forward annually report our progress against our carbon reduction targets and the associated initiatives we have taken in our journey to achieve net zero.
The past decade has seen our sector begin to change and embrace innovation at a faster rate than ever before. The connecting lines between parking and mobility are intensifying. Electric cars & EV charging, use of solar PV, implementation of ANPR systems and cashless payment options, micro-mobility and smart city digital solutions, parking as urban logistic centres are just some of the innovations across the sector. With autonomous cars, artificial intelligence (AI), role of big data and viable sustainable energy sources on the horizon the industry is likely to change even more.
This report details the innovations we as a company are bringing to the table which support our sustainable objectives.
