Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has accelerated its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint with the introduction of a small fleet of electric vehicles.
Six all-electric BMW i3s – the winner of the Best SME Green Company Car Award – have been added to the firm’s company car department to help reduce its carbon footprint and provide employees with a tax efficient sustainable alternative.
George Brewster, senior partner at Shepherd, said:
“Despite driving being a necessary and substantial feature of the surveyors’ day to day business activity, as a company we are keen to ensure we acknowledge our environmental obligations and travel in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.
“The BMWi3 enables us to lower our carbon footprint and annual fuel bill. Sustainability is important to our business and going electric will help us to save overheads – and the environment.”
Shepherd has some 150 surveyors working within the firm throughout Scotland and has a total company car fleet of around 140 cars covering three million miles annually. Brewster says the addition of the electric BMW i3 will produce substantial cost and tax savings.
