Our Business Commitment to Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability

Sustainability Solutions

At Summit Fleet, we acknowledge our duty to conduct business sustainably and contribute to environmental preservation. Aligned with our dedication to improving environmental performance and assisting our clients in achieving their sustainability objectives, our Sustainability Council (SC) was established in 2021.

The SC is a vital component of our overall governance structure aligning business and sustainability goals, we aim to achieve a triple bottom line – focusing on people, planet, and profit (the 3 P’s).

The SC actively contribute to the execution and oversight of growth strategies across all functions of our business. The council ensures that Corporate Social Repossibility initiatives encompass various aspects, including market considerations, business operations, and support functions.

Climate Active

Climate Active is an Australian Government initiative aimed at encouraging voluntary climate action among businesses. This program focuses on measuring, reducing, and offsetting carbon emissions, contributing to national climate policy.

This certification acknowledges Summit Fleet’s dedication to environmental sustainability in our day-to-day business operations. We actively work towards reducing emissions and compensate for the remainder by investing in carbon offset projects, achieving a fully balanced carbon-neutral status.

Reducing Carbon Footprint

At Summit Fleet, our purpose is deeply rooted in the commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. We strive to implement sustainable practices across all facets of our operations, from managing our internal fleet responsibly to advocating for eco-friendly choices in collaboration with our clients. By consistently measuring, analysing, and minimising our carbon emissions, we aim to contribute positively to environmental conservation.

Our Offsets

Offset units are used to compensate for emissions a business produces, to help reduce their carbon footprint. Offset units are generated by projects that reduce, remove or capture emissions from the atmosphere such as reforestation, renewable energy or energy efficiency. One carbon credit is issued for each tonne of emissions avoided, removed or captured from the atmosphere.

The Everdale Human-Induced Regeneration carbon project aims to restore and rejuvenate over 5,000 hectares of acacia woodland and eucalypt forest in the Western Division of New South Wales. These ecosystems are home to a variety of species, including many iconic Australian species, and provide important ecosystem services such as biodiversity, carbon capture, and soil and water conservation.

Renewable Energy – Wind power – 150 MW Grid Connected Wind Power Based Electricity Generation Project

The project is a 150 MW wind farm (100 x 1.5 MW wind turbines).
The project annually exports approximately 348,000 MWh of renewable energy to the Indian grid which has an emissions intensity of 0.9368 tCO2/ MWh. The project helps to meet Gujarat’s electricity demand while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helps improve the local grid’s power characteristics, improving reliability and useability.
