It’s a huge boost to the whole team to have our efforts and successes in air and noise quality reduction recognised by the South East Star. Their journalist wrote the following piece about EMSOL and why we were selected for their award. Thank you to all our supporters and customers who put us forward for these awards, it’s testament to the close business relationships we have.
In any industry there are always organisations that stand out from their peers and set the standards that others in their field have to aspire to achieve. First established back in 2017, EMSOL is an organisation that certainly meets this criteria leading the way when it comes to providing effective air pollution solutions for the transport industry. They have made quite a name for themselves over the years establishing a well deserved reputation as one of the rising stars of the industry and if the last few years are any barometer of what the future holds then there are many successful chapters yet to be written in the EMSOL story.
The reputation they have is fully justified and is now beginning to earn them more tangible forms of recognition. In the prestigious 2022 UK Transport Awards they were given the impressive accolade of being named ‘Most Innovative Transport Air Pollution Solution’. The award is well deserved and further cements their reputation as one of the absolute leaders in their field. With these types of awards we think it’s important to recognise organisations that are bringing something new and innovative to their marketplace. They don’t necessarily have to be the biggest but they have to be an organisation that is trying to offer something different to what is already out there and above all they must offer a great product or service. We feel that EMSOL ticks all the boxes and are worthy winners of the award.
The award is clearly no accident and will come as no surprise to anybody that has worked with EMSOL. In this edition we will try to give you an insight into the work that they do and the success that they’ve enjoyed. There are many factors but first and foremost they are good at what they do with the entire team sharing the same steadfast determination to maintain the high standards that have become such a trademark. What is it that EMSOL actually does? They are an innovative cleantech company that helps the organisations they work with to reduce transport pollution.
Over recent years there has been an increased trend amongst businesses in the UK to take their environmental responsibilities more seriously. A key part of this has been to manage vehicle emissions and it’s something that EMSOL have been at the forefront of. With ever changing legislation and increasingly tight standards in air quality it can be difficult for orgnaisations to adapt but this is where EMSOL really excels, empowering their clients to manage their site based emissions effectively. EMSOL enables the organisations it works with to measure, attribute, reduce and report their environmental impact.
They have a proven track record having successfully worked with a range of organisations from local authorities, construction giants, major retailers and logistics companies. Recent years, particularly during the Covid 19 pandemic, saw an increased demand from customers wanting to change to a healthier lifestyle with cleaner air and less environmental impact from commercial vehicle activities. Implementing those changes efficiently and effectively can be a real challenge but the team of professionals at EMSOL are able to help their clients to achieve those goals through their award winning solution.
Sustainability has never been more important and the challenge for businesses in the transport industry is to meet the challenge to distinguish themselves from their competitors. EMSOL allows them to do just that, measuring the environmental impact of delivery activities by new and existing fleets on a 24 hour basis. Using the platform helps supply chain operators to win new business based on the sustainability of their fleet as well as ensuring they increase their standing within their local communities. Being armed with EMSOL’s scientific data and impact reports can be a real game changer and allow their clients to evolve from passive observers into proactive advocates who can scientifically manage and evidence reductions in emissions. The benefits of using EMSOL’s platform are significant and result in their clients winning bids, avoid costly legislation breaches, evidence progress in pursuit of sustainability goals and ultimately increase credibility.
EMSOL are quite rightly regarded as real pioneers and have worked with organisations of all sizes including well known names such as John Lewis, the NHS, Veolia, Hanson and the Mace Group. The fact that they are held in such high regard by their clients speaks volumes not only about the service they provide but also the honest and ethical way they operate. Regardless of who they are working with, they never cut corners or compromise on the quality of the service that they provide in their determination to achieve results for their clients. Whilst the awards and accolades are great, the most glowing endorsement that any organisation can receive is from their own clients and the testimonials from EMSOL’s clients could not be any more emphatic.
Speaking about EMSOL’s solution Ali Ashpitel the Sustainability Manager at Mace Group says, “Using EMSOL meant getting data we can take action on, to bring us to our net zero goal- like changing delivery patterns, informing traffic planning and evaluating equipment and supplier sources.”
One of their great strengths as an organisation is the quality of team they have assembled. The management team at EMSOL deserve real credit for cultivating a culture where everyone shares the same commitment to make a real world difference to air pollution. Knowing that the work they do will reduce the impact of air pollution on the environment and create cleaner, healthier communities to live and work with is something that they quite rightly take immense pride from. Their work has already had a real impact on the clients pursuit of reaching their sustainability goals and despite their considerable achievements are showing no signs of slowing down.
They are constantly striving to improve and continue to move forward. They are continually evolving and open to embrace change whether it’s advances in technology or emerging industry trends in their determination to continue to deliver a service that is amongst the very best in their industry. They recently received funding from the UK Government’s Future Fund and their vision for the future was also shared by more than 400 investors from 33 countries who invested £738,160 in EMSOL through the Seedrs Crowdfunding platform. This financial support will enable EMSOL to expand, scale and develop their products and services.
The challenge they face in the future as their reputation grows and the demand for their services increases will be to maintain the same high standards that have given them so much success. Given the track record that they have we think it’s something that they will achieve and that EMSOL is a name you’ll be hearing much more of in the years to come.
