Environmental, Social and Governance / Corporate Social Responsibility
BRCGS AA accredited, a double Queen’s Award for Enterprise recipient for International Trade and Sustainable Development, we are now working towards becoming the first carbon-neutral business within our sector with a focus on people, planet, and social and environmental sustainability.
Oakland has taken the first step in the B Corp certification process, a commitment as a business to benefit people, communities, and the planet. Once our application has been approved, hopefully by the end of 2023, Oakland International will be the first temperature-controlled supply chain operator in the UK to achieve certification.
With a history for sustainability throughout our business practices, choices, growth strategy and planning, significant focus remains on ethical, social and environmental practices, with investment continuing in solar, electric and hybrid technologies amongst numerous other initiatives.
