The Environment & Safety – The Perfect Partnership
Posted on: 1st Nov 2012
As a leading construction company, Graham Group has always put the environment at the forefront of its business and actively supports the reduction of carbon emissions to help tackle climate change and operate in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Coupled with this has been a strong culture of improving safety within the business and this was recently recognised by a Gold Award from The Royal Society For The Prevention Of Accidents for Health and Safety.
Graham is a UK wide business and employee transport is an important element of the daily operation. When Fleet Financial (NI) Ltd were asked to review and suggest new cars for Graham Group the environment and driver safety were highlighted as major considerations.
With the launch of the new Volvo V40 5dr hatchback, Fleet Financial believes they have a car that covers all the requirements both from a company perspective and driver desirability. Volvo cars are renowned for driver safety but the V40 takes this to a new level by achieving the highest ever safety score from the independent European NCAP* institute plus it features the world’s first pedestrian airbag, as standard. Its environmental accolades are equally as impressive with the advanced 1.6 diesel D2 models producing a class leading CO2 of just 94g/km# and a combined MPG of 78.5mpg#.
The Volvo V40 has proven to be a hit with Graham drivers and not only helps them save money on company car tax, starting from just 13% BIK (based on current 2012-2013 tax rates) but provides them with a car offering a high level of standard equipment plus leading safety features such as collision detection with full auto-brake.
