British Gas has signed a deal for the supply of pre-owned parts with My Green Fleet to reduce its carbon footprint, repair costs and vehicle downtime.
My Green Fleet, a subsidiary of FAB Recycling, removes non-safety parts from damaged British Gas vehicles, recycling them back into the fleet’s supply chain when required.
Colin Marriott, general manager for fleet at British Gas, says: “My Green Fleet is supporting our fleet in a way that is financially sound and environmentally friendly. It has helped to reduce our repair costs and vehicle operational downtime.”
The company works directly with British Gas repair partner Hitachi Capital, which is responsible for the management of its vehicles from purchase, through to servicing, maintenance and disposal.
My Green Fleet collects premature end-of-life vehicles from around the country, creates an inventory per vehicle at its Gloucestershire base, and provides delivery of parts to Hitachi Capital on a daily basis.
Jason Cross, managing director of FAB Recycling, said: “High-quality pre-owned parts can greatly reduce the environmental impact of national fleets.”
