Briggs & Forrester are proud to have taken a notable step in our journey to becoming a more sustainable business, reducing our environmental impact by switching to a green fleet provider, lowering the carbon footprint of the Group and our employees.
Lex Autolease have been selected as Briggs & Forrester’s partner of choice to provide a fully comprehensive service covering new company car and van ordering. By offering only Electric Vehicles, Plug-In Hybrid and traditional Hybrid vehicles to our employees, this will significantly lower the Group’s Carbon Footprint. We are now able to offer the best available mix of manufacturers and vehicles to provide improved running costs and the added benefit of lower carbon emissions.
Dan Faulkner, Corporate Business Development Manager at Lex Autolease said: “We’ve seen many businesses explore the option of adding EVs to their policies in recent years – a move that will help reduce carbon footprint while also achieving significant cost reductions. The government’s recent announcement to bring forward the ban on ICE vehicles will no doubt fuel the switch for many.
“2030 will come around particularly quickly for businesses with large fleets of traditionally-fuelled cars and vans. Briggs & Forrester were ahead of the game, and we’ve been able to work with them to develop a solution that ensures their drivers have access to green vehicles that suit their needs.”
The CO2 emissions information of the vehicles on offer to Briggs & Forrester employees are provided in line with the recent focus of Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The Group will be making an initial saving of 1,702 tonnes of carbon per annum, which will improve year on year as the existing fleet is converted to electric, plug-in hybrid and traditional hybrid vehicles.
Paul Burton, Group CEO said: “We are proud to have partnered with Lex Autolease to offer our staff a wide range of electric and hybrid vehicles that will help to reduce our environmental impact. We have been working to improve our company fleet for some time and are proud that we have been able to launch this year. We have installed charging points at our head office with the aim to roll this out to our 10 regional offices across the UK.”
