David McMillan, the CEO of Esure Group, stated that the company has strived to be a responsible and sustainable business by focusing on combatting climate change and inspiring adjustments to both colleague and customer choices. He further stated that the company has agreed, published and activated its climate strategy, which centres on driving emissions reductions in line with its decarbonisation targets.

Esure Group’s Greener Parts initiative aims to support repairers in achieving carbon savings by using recycled non-safety vehicle parts. The initiative has been successful in reducing the carbon footprint of the company’s operations, saving approximately 117 tonnes of CO2e. Furthermore, 100% of the company’s branded bodyshop network has achieved PAS 2060 carbon-neutral status.

In addition to its Greener Parts initiative, Esure Group has been working with its suppliers to increase the use of recycled car parts for repairs in non-safety-critical applications such as vehicle doors, tailgates, lights, and bumpers. The company has established a UK-wide program that aims to enhance the availability of recycled parts, building a distribution network and establishing appropriate standards.

As of October 2022, Esure Group fitted 3,918 recycled parts, which resulted in savings of approximately 117,000 kg CO2e. The company will continue to focus on new and existing initiatives aimed at combatting climate change and will publish its ClimateWise disclosure annually, outlining all activity, progress, and plans in this space.

Esure Group’s commitment to sustainability is evident from its efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of its operations. By increasing the use of recycled car parts for repairs, the company has successfully reduced its emissions and contributed to a more sustainable future. As more companies adopt similar initiatives, the world can move towards a more sustainable future, mitigating the impact of climate change.
