Environmental Policy & Commitment
Working towards a Carbon Neutral Operation
Royale Chauffeur Group are providers of chauffeur services for corporate business and private clients. The company recognises that its employees and business activities will impact on both the local and global environment and that we have a responsibility to the community to minimise the adverse effects on the environment whenever possible.
We have sort to procure the most eco-friendly vehicles for our fleet. We were the first chauffeuring company to introduce the all-electric Tesla and we have a number of Hybrid vehicles. This policy will help us work towards environmentally sound business practices that will help mitigate the amount of carbon produced each year by our transport and office operations.
This policy commits Royale Chauffeur Group to:
Establish an environmental management system to ensure the integration of environmental considerations in all our business activities
Ensure that we consider and then aim to meet or exceed relevant environmental initiatives and expectations
Adopt standards of environmental protection from best industry practice, or indeed to lead in our field. We will strive to improve standards where reasonably practical and economic
Integrate environmental considerations into driver-training techniques, including road safety. Increase staff and customer awareness of this policy through training, publicity and our internal chauffeur guidelines. We will extend this policy into areas of procurement, waste management and external contract services where practical
Ensure that the Management has overall responsibility for this policy and for implementation of the environmental management system.
Royale Chauffeur Group are committed to researching the feasibility of alternative fuel powered vehicles such as electric and hydrogen. We are also keen to become a carbon neutral company by giving our clients the opportunity to carbon offset their journeys in the future.

All non-essential office equipment and lighting will be switched off when not needed.
