Sustainable transport (or green transport) refers to any means of transport with low impact on the environment. Wesbank Transport is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and therefore aims to make a positive contribution to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the communities we serve. Transport systems have significant impacts on the environment, accounting for between 20% and 25% of world energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. The social costs of transport include road crashes, air pollution, physical inactivity and vulnerability to fuel price increases. Traffic congestion imposes economic costs by wasting people’s time and by slowing the delivery of goods and services.
