It’s time to start thinking green!

Part of the problem or part of the solution?

That’s the question many people ask about the motor trade and the use of cars in general. But when you think about it, companies like 3B have a key role to play in reducing the UK’s carbon output.

As a member of the BVRLA, we know that we are part of a group of 970 companies that are responsible for no less than half of all vehicles sold in the UK! And no less than 80% of those built and sold in the UK!

As a result, we are in a unique position to have a real impact on the environment if we start to think green. Because of this, we have been working hard here at 3B to plan how we can change and adapt the way we work to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our environmental policy includes some obvious and subtle changes, such as recycling much of the waste we produce, switching branches to LED lighting and moving towards paperless systems. Just this month we have cut our print by moving our terms and conditions online and other small changes that have saved well over 10,000 pages of paper being printed each year. But the big impact will come from our switch to Electric Vehicle’s over the next few years.

It’s well known that by 2030, just 8 years time, no new petrol or diesel vehicle’s will be sold in the UK. By that time we intend to have our fleet fully electric. That’s potentially a few hundred vehicles!

In addition, we have been working hard to formulate a framework for a electric vehicle hire club for Thame and Haddenham. This will allow families and individuals who don’t need a car all the time to simply hire by the hour and a fixed, low rate. Stay tuned for more info on the launch!

There is no doubt in our mind that there is a lot more we can all do to reduce our impact on the environment and help make the world in which we live a better place to be. Now certainly feels the time to start to make those changes and to think green.
