The Volvo corporate sales team has taken its environmental commitment to a new level by becoming carbon neutral. The team1 has enlisted the help of Future Forests to plant trees2 that will offset the CO2 emissions generated by their company cars during this financial year.
According to Ian Rendle, Volvo Car UK’s Corporate Sales Manager, the move was part of the company’s overall commitment to the environment.
He said: ‘This initiative is a practical way to reinforce Volvo’s strong environmental brand values as well as demonstrating a green commitment to our fleet customers.
‘More and more fleet managers are adding Volvo cars to their company car lists as they look to reduce emissions across the fleet and drivers look to reduce their Benefit in Kind tax bills,’ he added.
At the end of June, Volvo’s fleet sales had more than doubled since 2000, increasing to 10,817, out of total year-to-date sales of 20,908.Published 15 July 2002
