Indeed the Post Office website has details of its 'Corporate Responsibility' where it identifies 17.5% of its CO2 equivalents emissions coming from people commuting to work; and its business travel by road as contributing 41% of its CO2 emissions. The Post Office expresses a commitment to cutting these emissions and yet wants to move workers from Gloucester to Swindon and carry local letters to Swindon and back. This is purely short term financial gains.
Gloucestershire’s Mail Centre is known within Royal Mail for its excellent productivity. It is vital we retain local centres and reduce our carbon footprint.
We need to get as many residents of Gloucestershire to tell Royal Mail and the Government that their plans are not acceptable. Please object to Royal Mail’s decision to close Gloucestershire’s Mail Centre, by writing to Allan Leighton, Chairman, Royal Mail, 148 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HQ.
You can also visit the campaign website for more information and up to date news at www.savegloucestermailcentre.co.uk where you will also be able to sign the on-line petition and see the Early Day Motion in the House of Commons objecting to the closure.
