Green party for Trustford

Trustford has been named Green Apple World Ambassador 2016 in recognition for its ongoing commitment to minimising environmental impact.

Set up by the Green Organisation as part of its international campaign to identify, reward and promote environmental best practice, the award is given to those organisations that consistently place the environment at the heart of their business. TrustFord has been a recipient of the annual Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice for three consecutive years.

Its award this year recognises the steps it has taken to reduce energy consumption across its network of 65 dealer sites in recent years. Major initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint include the installation of energy efficient lighting, the provision of on-site burners to minimise resource usage, and the implementation of solar panels across a number of its dealerships.

Steve Hood, chairman and CEO at TrustFord, said, ‘We’re delighted to have achieved the prestigious ‘Green World Ambassador’ status. The award reflects our dedication to environmental best practice within TrustFord, and it’s an honour to be recognised this way by The Green Organisation. Being a Good Corporate Citizen is one of our strategic goals and we are committed to creating an environmentally conscious culture throughout our organisation.’
