Copart accelerates carbon literacy strategy

Copart is accelerating plans to roll out carbon literacy training programmes to its 1,200 teammates across our 19 UK locations.

The training is being delivered by AutoTrader on behalf of the government-funded initiative The Carbon Literacy Project.

The Carbon Literacy Project aims to provide an understanding of what climate change is, how it affects us, and the actions we all need to take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Jane Pocock, managing director of Copart UK & Ireland, who has already undergone the training, said: We’re grateful to AutoTrader for helping us to take our first steps towards company-wide carbon literacy in line with our Plan-Net-Zeroprogramme. We’re delighted to have this opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and to work alongside a business whose CSR values align so closely with our own.

We are planning to achieve gold status as soon as possible by rolling out training to all teammates across our business.”

Meanwhile, Copart’s training partnership with HGVC has now seen nine trees planted in Madagascar.

HGVC, the first and only UK driver training provider to offer carbon neutral training, is helping Copart deliver its Driver Academy Programme and has pledged to plant a tree for every course delivered.
