Fleet management company Fleet Alliance has added three low emission vehicles to its company car fleet for its staff.
The Nissan Leaf, Lexus CT200h and Toyota Prius have been added onto staff choice lists in order to reduce emissions amongst its own fleet and encourage greener motoring.
According to the company, 15.1 billion grams of CO2 have been saved across its clients' fleets of 18,400 vehicles since 2008 - the equivalent of taking 3500 vehicles off the road.
Last year, vehicles ordered through the company emitted an average of 119g/km of CO2, while a quarter of all new cars procured through the firm emitted less than 100g/km of CO2, compared with 16% in 2014.
It has now benchmarked an order rate of 30% for sub-100g/km of CO2 vehicles this year in order to keep up its green momentum.
"We are very committed to pursuing a green agenda here at Fleet Alliance, and thought that one way of demonstrating that commitment would be to extend our company car policy for our own staff to give them a greater and wider green choice," said managing director of Fleet Alliance, Martin Brown. "We are also are hugely encouraged that the advice that we have been offering to our clients for the last two or three years has been increasingly heeded, as carbon emissions are falling markedly across our whole fleet and the number of sub 100g/km vehicles is steadily growing."
