UK insurer using ‘green’ parts for repairs

UK-based salvage and vehicle recycling company, Synetiq, has signed a green parts contract with personal lines insurer, esure, to supply quality graded, recycled parts to its repairer network.

The procurement of environmentally sustainable parts will allow esure to continue work on the decarbonisation of its supply chain.

The new agreement is the expansion of an existing partnership between esure and Synetiq.

Last year alone esure’s repairer partners purchased over 3,300 green parts from Synetiq, saving over 79,000kg of CO2e.

Tom Rumboll, CEO at Synetiq, said: “This is a significant agreement and underlines the importance of working together to drive cost savings and reduce emissions.

“Cutting the motor insurance industry’s carbon footprint is a priority – as part of a successful integrated and circular model, Synetiq and esure will work side by side to maximise the environmental and financial potential of every vehicle.”
