Multi-channel retailer Findel has cut its car emissions by almost 25% after renewing almost all of its fleet.
After taking advice from TR Fleet, the firm has seen average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on its 262-strong car fleet fall from 164 g/km to 125 g/km.
Findel is benefiting from improved miles per gallon (MPG) and lower fuel bills.
The car policy has an emissions cap set at 160 g/km for senior management grades and 140 g/km for other company cars. However, this will reduce on an annual sliding scale and will fall next year to 140 g/km and 120 g/km, respectively.
Roz Byrom, group fleet manager, said: “The company car policy that we have introduced this year has been a win-win for the organisation and drivers alike in terms of financial savings and carbon footprint reduction.
“We actively encourage drivers to choose the lowest emission company cars available to them with the incentive being that the lower the CO2 figure the lower their benefit-in-kind tax bill.”
