Company car share cuts our carbon footprint

Green light: the scheme is to cut emissions and reduce fuel use

Green light: the scheme is to cut emissions and reduce fuel use

The management team of our South East region has been doing its bit to cut the company’s carbon footprint by setting up a car share scheme.

Every time directors and managers have to travel to meetings or site visits they try to minimise the numbers of cars being taken – reducing emissions and fuels costs.

Each driver makes a log of the shared journey and submits it so we can build up a picture of how many miles we are saving. We have even nominated an “energy-saving champion” to make sure we do as much as we can.

The plan runs alongside a national array of eco-friendly measures, such as installing solar panels on roofs, cycle lanes, a hydro-electric turbine, and building homes as part of the UK’s largest zero-carbon development, Graylingwell Park in Chichester.

Linden Homes South East managing director Steve Bangs said: “We include a lot of energy-saving measures and green technology in our quality homes, but this car share scheme shows how determined we are to do our bit across the board.”
