Robin Challand, Claims Director at Ageas, added: 

“We are delighted that our work with Hills and The Green Parts Specialists, to reduce the impact of car repairs on the environment, has received further recognition. Working very much in partnership, we have looked to innovate and continually challenge one another to take our initiative to the next level.

I’m thrilled that currently, around 1 in 5 of the green car parts we use come from our salvaged vehicles. This is helping to extend the use of existing materials, as well as reduce the need for more parts to be manufactured.”

The judges commented that this collaboration is challenging perceptions and shows that unexpected partnerships can overcome big barriers. They commented that both organisations had recognised a block in the system, made a partnership to overcome it. They also recognised that both organisations are early adopters in a market sector that is accelerating the transition to a circular economy.

Ian added:

“The award is the culmination and recognition of all the hard work of everybody who has supported us on the journey to embrace the use of Green Parts within the repair chain.”
