Local authorities are now pushing for the climate emergency and the fight to reduce carbon emissions, and as a key component of the transportation industry, we are in fact in a vital position to creating change. Solutions such as integrated solar panels offer a fantastic opportunity to tackle these problems, but the challenge that many car parks face, especially privately owned car parks, is the high cost in some of these more common solutions. How can private operators balance profitability and social responsibility? This is just one of the questions we try to dissect in a brilliant episode of Brake The Mould.
Does the responsibility lie with the operators to become the voices of change in the industry, and how can we make this a focal point of parking at every level?
Scenarios such as working alongside each other, rather than competing, to drive towards this common goal could be the best way of achieving this and Julian explains some of the steps that the BPA is planning to take to drive positive habits as a collective sector, both in parking and transportation in general. Ryan challenges Julian with a question on creating a collective standard that can benefit the environment and create change in the industry, positioning it in a positive light.
