Shepherd charges ahead to next survey with electric fleet

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has accelerated its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint with the introduction of a new fleet of electric vehicles.

Six all-electric BMW i3s, the world’s first mass production model to be designed for sustainability at every stage, have been added to the firm’s fleet to help reduce its carbon footprint and give its employees a tax efficient sustainable alternative.

And with over 150 surveyors working within the firm throughout Scotland from a fleet of around 140 cars covering three million miles annually, the cost savings in tax and fuel should be substantial.

George Brewster, senior partner at Shepherd, said, “Despite driving being a necessary and substantial feature of the surveyors’ day to day business activity, as a company we are keen to ensure we acknowledge our environmental obligations and travel in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.

“The BMWi3 enables us to lower our carbon footprint and annual fuel bill. Sustainability is important to our business and going electric will help us to save overheads – and the environment!”
