Long-standing Proteus customer Oakland International has won the award for Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) at The Logistics Awards held in London on 21st September.
With its reputation built on growth through sustainability, Oakland’s rolling investment in energy efficient technologies and green initiatives has radically reduced their annual carbon footprint and delivered associated benefits across their customer and partner networks. Not surprisingly the company is already exceeding their 2023 Climate Change Levy targets for energy compliance.
Chief Executive and Co-Founder, Dean Attwell, commented: “The Logistics Awards celebrate operational excellence within our industry, but we firmly believe that this should not be at the expense of our communities or the environment. Our aim as a responsible family business is to give something back to the communities in which we operate, and long before the term ‘CSR’ was ever created, Oakland International’s ethos has been to incorporate social responsibility practices in to our core business activities and values. This award formally acknowledges our team who continue to support our vision.”
Proteus are proud to have worked closely alongside Oakland supporting their award-winning growth for over a decade. In that time we've seen Oakland double their workforce and expand into new territories all whilst continuing to provide enhanced levels of service and accuracy thanks to the Proteus WMS. We congratulate them on their CSR achievements and look forward to supporting Oakland as they continue to grow.
