A Green Asset Finance facility helps one of the UK’s biggest private companies adopt smart LED lighting to deliver benefits for its business – and for the environment.

Major manufacturing, logistics and consultancy firm Unipart has put energy, waste and resource efficiency at the heart of its business strategy for many years.

When the firm – which already holds Environmental Management Excellence awards – wanted to install ‘intelligent’ low-energy lighting across its warehouses, it looked to Barclays to help.

Our asset finance specialists were able to work with Unipart to determine an optimal financing solution.

A suitable Green Asset Finance facility enabled Unipart to finance installation of the specialist LED lighting in its biggest distribution centre – and receive a valuable green accreditation in the process.

As well as helping to reduce its energy and maintenance costs, we hope the initiative puts Unipart a step closer to winning another Environmental Management Excellence award.

Barclays supported us to source a simple, innovative solution that worked from both a financial and a green perspective. We’re proud of our green agenda efforts and these low-energy lighting solutions will help us meet our targets.
