All New Electric Van
Austin’s new all electric van for our Carpet Measuring and Estimating services is a further step in our investment in environmentally friendly policies across the business.
The new 100% electric van replaces a diesel engine van, with all the benefits that brings to the environment.
Austins has invested in policies to benefit the environment for a number of years, including the installation of LED lighting in all its buildings, and the addition of solar panels. This has resulted in a reduction of up to 65% in electricity usage saving many tons of carbon emissions each year.
Austins is fully committed to recycling as much as possible. All cardboard, plastics, glass and metal are separated for recycling. Waste food is taken away to be composted. Old beds and upholstery are sent away for stripping down and recycling. Old carpet is baled and sent away to be used in waste to heat plants. There is little Austins does not recycle.
Austins is keen to be environmentally aware in all the activities it is involved in as a business, and is very pleased to have made this latest change from a diesel to a fully electric van for Carpet Measuring and Estimating.
