Inspired Gaming Group plc (Inspired), the leading player in the Open Server-Based Gaming (Open SBGTM) market, today announces plans that will see a large scale overhaul of its vehicle fleet in an effort to be more environmentally friendly. The firm is looking to reduce carbon emissions by between 150-300 tonnes over the next 18 months through a series of initiatives including the introduction of BioPower cars, alternative transport methods, and a staff incentive scheme.

Part of Inspired’s plan to drastically reducing their carbon footprint is a consultation with the Energy Saving Trust (EST). Following recent discussions, EST is now in the process of putting forward recommendations to Inspired on where changes and improvements can be implemented.

Inspired is looking to further review its choice of vehicles on the company fleet. The firm will this week take delivery of two Saab 93 BioPower cars, as well as asking a number of potential suppliers to make their recommendations for suitable vehicles powered by alternative fuels or hybrids. In addition, trials of a number of options, including motorbikes in London and electric-powered cars, are currently being undertaken.

Meanwhile, Inspired has just agreed a staff incentive scheme that allows employees to trade down to vehicles with lower emissions or to drive vehicles powered by alternative fuels or hybrids. This scheme provides the staff at Inspired a cash incentive to take a green car, and also provides an opportunity for the management to contribute some of those savings to charity.

Dave Wilson, CEO Managed Services, Inspired commented: “As part of Inspired’s commitment to reducing emissions in whatever way possible, we are delighted to collaborate with the EST, and take its advice on how we can make our fleet even greener. I look forward to seeing these environmentally beneficial changes implemented in the near future.”
