LV= secures green parts contract

(LV= GI) has entered into an agreement with Synetiq to increase the number of green parts used to repair vehicles.

The commitment to green parts continues LV=’s focus on sustainability; its offices are now powered 100% by renewable electricity and the company is also working to cut greenhouse gas emissions, paper and water use as well as become net zero.

The deal follows a successful trial and means that LV= will now have regular access to green parts such as doors, lights, body panels, and major mechanical parts.

Martin Milliner, claims director at LV= General Insurance, said: “Our new partnership will significantly help with our sustainability and environmental goals and ambitions, as we want to service all types of cars and have the availability of different green parts to support this. Accessing green parts in the supply chain hasn’t always been easy and this will benefit our bodyshops and our customers who want to choose these parts. It’s also great to see investment across the industry in electric vehicles and upskilling mechanics for the future, which will help us service the increasing number of EVs on Britain’s roads.”

Tom Rumboll, CEO of SYNETIQ, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the LV= business after going through such a robust and well executed tender process. We passionately believe SYNETIQ are the right integrated salvage partner for LV= with our joint focus on customers and sustainability being key priorities. We look forward to seeing the relationship go from strength to strength.”
