Major initiatives introduced have included:
- The launch of a more environmentally-friendly fleet policy which sees no company car driver able to choose a car which returns under 24 mpg.
- User-choosers able to downsize and take a cash payment equating to the rental difference between the two vehicles plus £1 for every mile the chosen vehicle returns above the minimum 24 mpg average as published by the Government. Payments are made monthly.
- Lex Vehicle Leasing offices in Marlow, Sale and Stirling being equipped with video conferencing facilities costing £70,000 which has reduced the amount of time employees spend travelling between the sites, which in turn has reduced fuel usage and emissions and taken vehicles off the road.
- ISDN lines have been installed in each of its 35 sales peoples' homes which mean they can communicate with their office and customer base from home, thus reducing extensive travelling. A Kent based sales manager has estimated the initiative will reduce his mileage by more than 5,000 miles a year.
Other measures taken include the monitoring and reduction of energy usage in the business, and monitoring the use and disposal of materials within Lex Vehicle Leasing offices, particularly paper.
