Fix Auto UK achieves sustainability milestone

Fix Auto UK has achieved PAS 2060 accreditation for all its wholly owned repair centres.

The centres that have gained their PAS 2060 certificates are Fix Auto Barnsley, Fix Auto Colwyn Bay, Fix Auto Crawley, Fix Auto Castleford, Fix Auto Daventry, Fix Auto Henley-on-Thames, Fix Auto Liverpool South, Fix Auto Newport and Fix Auto Paignton.

Under the PAS 2060 assessment directions, Fix Auto Cheltenham which now falls under the umbrella of Fix Auto UK-owned sites after the network bought a majority share of the business in July this year, will have to wait until next summer before it can be assessed.

Fix Auto Goole, the second repair centre that Fix Auto UK own a majority share of, is poised to embark on its PAS 2060 certification process.

Mark Hutchins, operations director for Fix Auto UK, said: “Operating a carbon neutral repair centre must be a goal of every repairer in the country. We are proud to say numerous Franchise Partners are already PAS 2060 certified and are leading the way for the industry with numerous initiatives to ensure their carbon footprints are dramatically reduced year-on-year.

“We have invested significantly in our owned and part owned sites over the last couple of years, that investment has provided us with a springboard to gain PAS 2060 accreditations for each site. Thankfully, our close working relationship with Purchase Direct has ensured a relatively seamless process to achieve our goal.”

Joanne Hopkinson, Project Manager, Energy Services for Purchase Direct, added: “We are really pleased to be working with Fix Auto UK to help the network achieve and maintain carbon neutrality for their wholly owned sites. It sets a great precedent for the wider network, and we look forward to our ongoing work together to reduce their carbon impact in line with their current targets.”
