NECS Supports XLCR with Green Environmental Initiative
NECS is delighted to support its vehicle leasing partner XLCR Vehicle Management in its initiative to offset carbon emissions by planting trees in the local community.
For more than 13 years XLCR Vehicle Management has supplied our fleet of vehicles to help us service our customers across the UK. We were approached by the company in 2020 when they launched the initiative in partnership with the Woodland Trust, the local council and schools in Colne, Lancashire. XLCR Vehicle Management offered us a fixed fee at the start of each new van lease which would be used to plant enough trees to offset our carbon emissions over a 4-year lease period.
Gary Breach, Managing Director at NECS, said: “We are proud to have played our part in supporting XLCR Vehicle Management in its work to reduce carbon emissions.
“We have just taken delivery of our seventh vehicle since the scheme started which has enabled the planting of over 100 trees. I think it is a great scheme and if we all do our bit it will make a difference to the environment and the communities we live in.”
Tracey Whalley, Operations Director at XLCR Vehicle Management added “The programme has done tremendously well since its inception in 2020. Collectively, XLCR customers have contributed to the planting of over 1,000 trees so far in local areas around schools and urban centres to improve air quality – with more and more trees being planted every season.”
“We’re pleased that NECS chose to take part in the programme. By donating at the start of their lease contract, they have offset a huge 110 tonnes of CO2 in total from their company vans – helping us collectively make a difference to air quality.”
