Imtech fleet change set to cut carbon emissions
Technical services provider Imtech has announced plans to convert its entire Dutch lease car fleet of more than 3,000 vehicles to low-carbon fuels.
The switch will involve all 3,200 of the cars and commercial vehicles owned by the company in the Netherlands moving over to Excellium fuel, with the changeover coming as part of the firm's corporate social responsibility policy.
In a statement, the company claimed the changes will mean that next year it will save 380,000 litres of fuel and 980,000 tones of carbon emissions.
"Imtech focuses on the issue of how its own primary business activities can contribute towards a sustainable development," the statement said.
It added: "Imtech endorses a pragmatic approach and wishes to conduct itself as a actively aware company that makes a major contribution towards a more liveable and sustainable society."
While it is based in the Netherlands, Imtech also operates in several other European countries, including the UK, and employs 18,000 people globally.
