Lexus of Brighton
At Lexus of Brighton, we are committed to helping the environment and are working ardently towards reducing our carbon footprint. This commitment is not just in our Lexus Hybrid Drive technology, but also in the way we operate as an organisation.
Since the start of 2008, Lexus of Brighton has diverted over 75% of the organisation's waste from landfill. This includes cardboard, commingled, paper and plastic recycling and covers all areas of the organisation. The implementation of cardboard, paper, commingled and plastic recycling services has been so successful due to the positive attitudes towards recycling by staff and management.
In addition to recycling services, staff are encouraged to do small things in their daily work schedules such as turning off electrical equipment when not in use, e-mail instead of using general post, think before printing, and walk or cycle to work.
We are also entering into Phase 3 of our Waste Management campaign which will introduce other services such as steel recycling, eco-friendly oil disposal, and the better servicing of petrol and oil interceptors.
Lexus of Brighton will continue to monitor, upgrade and implement waste management policies and procedures, as well as actively promote more environmentally friendly practices by staff to help improve our carbon footprint.
The Lexus Hybrid Drive solution
Through Lexus Hybrid Drive, we create vehicles that deliver 'guilt free performance'. We have invested many millions of dollars developing Lexus Hybrid Drive into an engine system that delivers increased power with decreased fuel consumption and emissions. Yet there are other bonuses; Lexus Hybrid Drive is smoother, quieter, and delivers instant response that defies its status as an 'economy' solution.
The energy which is normally wasted while slowing down or braking is conserved as electricity which is stored in the battery. When stopped at traffic lights, it actually switches off to conserve fuel. Yet when you need brisk acceleration, the petrol engine and high output electric motors combine to deliver dramatic acceleration rivalling far thirstier conventional vehicles.
