Committed to Our Planet

We’re passionate about the world around us

As the effects of climate change become more apparent we must consciously make an effort to reduce our carbon footprint as a business, and individually.

At Trans-Sport.tv, we have always made an effort to re use items and products where possible and use sustainable and recyclable materials.

We have embarked on a number of new initiatives over the years as well as continuing with long standing principles and strategies in order to reduce our carbon footprint:

  • Since March 2020 we have been supplying water coolers to our clients on events in an effort to reduce the amount of single waste plastics. Since then, we have rented out 96 18L bottles of water, all of which are brought back in for recycling with no waste going to landfill. This equates to a saving of over 3450 single use plastics bottles – each of which take at least 450 years to decompose!
  • Cycle to work and walk to work routes have been distributed to team members 
  • Plastic milk bottle tops are saved and donated to local charities which convert into equipment in the community
  • We have replaced diesel forklifts with electric in our warehousing to reduce noise pollution and provide a cleaner environment for our staff
  • We have changed all lighting in our office, workshop and warehousing to LED with motion detectors to reduce our energy consumption
  • We are replacing vehicles to comply with latest emission standards (Euro 6)

At our base in Treswell we are now housing over 1.5 million bees! We started off with just one hive in the hope of giving the bee population a helping hand however we are now home to over 20 hives!

Did you know, bees rely on a transport system of pathways running through our towns and countryside’s called ‘B Lines’, take a look at your area here and see if you’re in the middle of a bustling B-Line! We’ll bee keeping you informed about what our bees get up to in the coming months – you won’t beelieve just how far they’ll fly!

Why our little bees are so important –

  • It has been estimated that it would cost farmers in the UK an incredible £1.8 billion per year to manually pollinate their crops
  • As well as being pollinators, honey bees, Apis mellifera, also produce honey. This sticky sweet golden liquid is a valuable product not only for its taste, but also due to its medicinal properties

In addition to housing our new friends we have planted wild flower meadows around our base in Treswell which allows the bees to take shorter journeys.

“Tuxford Academy’s Creative Arts Faculty has had the privilege to work in partnership with Trans-sport for the last six years. Over that period they have given their time & expertise most generously. Their support has been focused on assisting us with our annual school production & talent shows, through provision & installation of staging, lighting rigs & sound equipment. Despite their own highly demanding schedule, they always find time for us. I am inspired not only by their professionalism, but also their commitment to organisations like ours. Countless young people in the Tuxford area have enjoyed participation in productions which we could not have staged so ambitiously were it not for such a dedicated team.”
