As more businesses turn their focus to sustainable practice, the question is increasingly being asked - can we reduce the carbon emissions from our forklift operations?
The answer is simple - yes. If your business is operating internal combustion engines within your forklift fleet, replacing them with electric driven vehicles will have a direct impact on your company's carbon emissions. It is estimated that converting to electric forklifts can save up to 5 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
Interestingly, conversion to a more eco-efficient operating model can present a win-win proposition. Whilst reducing carbon emissions, converting to eco-efficient models can also assist to reduce operating costs and support productivity.
