We’re going green!

Here at Dover Transport Museum, we’re proud to announce that we are now carbon balancing out all miles driven as part of our offsite activities. As members of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) we are taking part in their newly launched Carbon Capturing Scheme.

What are we carbon capturing?

All the miles we drive in the museum’s vehicles are offset in a carbon capturing scheme that plants trees here in the UK which, over their lifetime, will absorb our vehicle’s emissions.  Our trees are being planted in Tom’s Wood in North Yorkshire. A wide variety of trees can be used for carbon capture. The FBHVC and its partner, Tree-V, use trees that are native to the area and best suited to the local environment. Tom’s Wood is a mix of Alder, Birch, Wild Cherry, Willow and Sycamore.
