Global leader in online vehicle remarketing and recycling, Copart UK, has today announced that they have achieved a Carbon Literacy Gold Accreditation, with over 50% of their workforce now certified.

The Carbon Literacy Project awards this accreditation to companies that maintain a substantial proportion of their workforce as Carbon Literate and demonstrate Carbon Literacy through their organisational behaviours. Reaching gold less than a year after achieving silver highlights Copart’s ongoing commitment to tackling climate change and reducing carbon emissions, and their determination to always act responsibly and sustainably. The company now plans to achieve platinum level and has been equipping more teammates across their business to help deliver training both internally and out to the wider industry.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said:

“We’re delighted to announce that over half of our Copart UK teammates are now certified as Carbon Literate. “It’s been wonderful to see such high levels of engagement across our business and there’s been a real shift in awareness and behaviours when it comes to always thinking green in everything we do. “We’re now making excellent progress towards our next goal of achieving platinum level, where we’ll be delivering training to 80% of our workforce and promoting positive action against climate change by further extending our ESG commitment out to our supplier chain.” Copart said that their ongoing carbon literacy journey is just one aspect of their ‘Plan-Net-Zero’, which also includes the ‘Greenest Fleet on the Street’, the setting of science-based targets (SBTi), and the continued expansion of their UK recycling and green parts capabilities. This was most recently boosted by their newly-acquired The Green Parts Specialists brand, which enables Copart to offer an unbeatable set of integrated green parts and salvage solutions to all of their customers.
