Carrs Ferrari Exeter, part of the Vertu Motors group, has been acknowledged by Ferrari North Europe as the Best Green Dealer in the UK, a prestigious accolade affirming the retailer's commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
The recognition reflects Carrs Ferrari's dedicated initiatives to reduce its environmental footprint. These initiatives include the implementation of an advanced energy and water monitoring system, designed to achieve a significant target of 10% annual reduction in energy and water usage. The smart system allows for real-time tracking and management of energy consumption, highlighting Carrs Ferrari's proactive approach to resource conservation.
Furthermore, like many of the wider Vertu Motors group's dealerships, Carrs Ferrari Exeter has invested in roof solar panels, a key component in its strategy to produce green electricity on-site, lessening reliance on traditional power sources. This complements the commitment to green energy sourcing, as the retailer now procures electricity exclusively from providers offering 100% renewable energy.
Carrs Ferrari's efforts extend to a comprehensive colleague green engagement programme, where colleagues receive training in energy-saving practices, fostering a culture of environmental awareness and action within the workplace.
The retailer's dedication to sustainability is also evident in its robust recycling programme, ensuring responsible waste management and reduction.
Speaking on this significant achievement, Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Vertu Motors, said: "We are immensely proud of Carrs Ferrari Exeter for being acknowledged as the Best Green Dealer in the UK by Ferrari North Europe.
