Business energy and carbon neutral specialists, ECA Business Energy, has signed as Gold Corporate Partner to Trend Tracker, supporting a brand-new series of quarterly detailed industry reports, the first of which entitled ‘Emerging from COVID’ is out now.
Steve Silverwood, Managing Director of ECA Business Energy said “We’ve been involved in the accident repair sector for over 12 years now and have helped over 350 bodyshops save over £3.5m on their utility costs. Over the last year or so, we have seen a growing appetite from the industry to become carbon neutral and begin their net zero journey.
Steve added: “The partnership with Trend Tracker is a perfect fit for us and we look forward to working with Steve and the team and continue to get the message out to the wider sector regarding the growing importance of reducing carbon emissions, which will benefit clients, supply chain and the planet.”
The future of the industry is without doubt going to be challenging, managing the exit from COVID-19, the tsunami of technological advances already in play, the rapid growth of ACE (Automated Connected, Electric) Vehicles and all of this at the same time as a requirement to become carbon neutral, said Industry Insights’ Managing Director Steve Thompson, introducing the ‘Emerging from COVID’ report.
“The growth of ECA Business Energy within the repair sector has been phenomenal and Steve and his team have built a well-earned reputation as being the go-to place for the many businesses taking the journey to reduce their emissions and implement better business practices,” said Steve Thompson.
“ECA’s business values are aligned with those of Trend Tracker and I am honoured to have ECA on board as a Gold Corporate Partner,” added Steve.
