On Thursday 27th November Park House Healthcare were awarded the ‘Eco-driving’ Award 2014 at the Fleet Hero Awards, Institute of Directors, London.

The Energy Saving Trust created the awards in 2005 to recognise organisations for reducing their carbon footprints and lowering their fuel bills.

Park House Healthcare have invested heavily in measurement and tracking equipment for all company vehicles. The company analyse the data for fuel usage, speeding instances and idling time. This objective has resulted in 10% of drivers each month undertaking extra training, while 58% of all company employees have been trained in smarter driving, a scheme held during this summer’s in-house “Green Week”.

Stephen Owens, Managing Director, Park House Healthcare, said “We identified that environmental sustainability was a key strategic area for development, not only for reducing cost but to actively reduce our carbon footprint. Having gained ISO14001 certification in 2013, we were awarded the ‘Environment, Health and Social Care Business of the Year’ Award, winning another environmental award really highlights the dedication, hard work and professionalism of the Park House team”
