Environmental management for road sector

Reduce downtime, ensure environmental compliance, and achieve your decarbonisation ambitions.

We help road transport and logistics operators maintain your ageing assets, install new fuel infrastructure, and manage your environment so that you can ensure compliance with environmental regulations, reduce downtime, and achieve your sustainability ambitions.

Tackling key challenges in the road sector

Transport Decarbonisation Plan

Transport produced 27% of the UK’s total emissions in 2019, of which 65% (6 MtCO2e) came from road transport. Fuelled by the government’s transport decarbonisation plan, the industry is committed to reaching Net-Zero by 2050.

Sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans end in 2030 and new HGVs must be zero emission at the tailpipe from 2035. Road transport and logistics organisations are currently at a crossroads, deciding whether to move to HVO or electric and hydrogen fuelling.

You are looking to your supply chain to deliver sustainability to help you achieve your Net-Zero targets and align to the Government’s Transport Decarbonisation Plan as well as demonstrating innovation with their solutions.

Maintaining ageing assets

Fuel infrastructure and critical assets such as tanks, separators, and drainage, like many sectors, is ageing and requires specialist maintenance regimes to ensure compliance while managing budget constraints.

Cost of fuel

The cost of fuel has a huge impact on transport and logistics organisations. It is up to you how much of this cost you pass on to your customers. Maintaining containment tanks to ensure they don’t inadvertently contaminate your fuel or leak causing an environmental incident, polishing contaminated fuel so it doesn’t cause damage to your fleet, and ensuring they are secure to reduce the risk from theft will protect your valuable asset.

Planned preventive maintenance

We ensure your assets remain compliant by establishing a planned preventive maintenance (PPM) regime so that you can ensure you have up-to-date maintenance documentation in the event of a pollution incident and to extend the lifespan of your assets.

Separator inspection and maintenance

Remain compliant with current legislation (BS EN 858-2:2003) through inspection, maintenance, and repair of your separator and alarm so that you can reduce the risk of an environmental incident, regulatory fines, operational downtime, and reputation damage.

Storage tank inspection and testing

Minimise the risk of asset failure, leakages, content contamination, and pollution with regular storage tank inspections so that they can remain compliant. Using the latest high-pressure or ultrasonic technology, our skilled engineers and specialist welders test for leaks and structural concerns. Our inspection and reporting services cover tanks used for fuel, water, and chemicals, and are compliant with EEMUA 159, API 653, OFTEC Guidelines and NDT Inspection Standards.

Bund inspection and maintenance

We help organisations ensure their bunds are compliant to CIRIA C736 and other relevant regulations by offering design, construction, inspection, and maintenance of your assets.

Drains and sewers

Keep your networks flowing and reduce risk, through the identification and resolution of standard and complex issues, maintaining assets in the long and short-term through expert survey, maintenance, and upgrades.


Our experts project manage the entire decommission process from planning and preparation to demolition and onward development, with fast turnaround, while reducing environmental risk. Demolition work could range from infilling tanks and leaving them safely in situ to full tank removal and disposal depending on the intended use of the site.

Fuel infrastructure

We help organisations reduce risk, cost, and operational downtime, by designing, installing, inspecting, testing, and maintaining fuel infrastructure to ensure your operation meets current and future operational capacity and compliance requirements.

Emergency response

We respond to incidents involving oil, chemicals, hazardous material (hazmat), hazardous and noxious substances (HNS), flooding, sewage, and other types of pollution so that you can minimise the impact on the environment, operational downtime, levels of fine, avoid prosecution and maintain your reputation and shareholder value.

Fuel management

Ensure operational continuity by analysing, uplifting, transferring, and polishing fuel as well as emergency fuel delivery so that you can minimise downtime, reduce risk to the environment and ensure compliance. Remote monitoring telemetry systems as well as security measures such as CCTV will help you manage the security of your high value fuel assets.


Protect your terrestrial and aquatic environments by adhering to regulatory and statutory compliance surrounding the development of land. Looking to develop a piece of land, you need an Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) and various protected species surveys recommended in the Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (PEA) to ensure you have minimal impact on nearby terrestrial ecology habitats.
