Fit for the Future: TotalEnergies launches new sustainability award scheme for independent workshops

We know that becoming more sustainable is a challenge for the automotive industry, particularly in today’s economic and political climate. But we also know that workshops are under great pressure to make progress, both to ensure their business remains resilient and sustainable and to meet the changing needs of customers, many of whom are willing to pay more for products and services that reduce the environmental footprint of motoring (click here to explore further research on this).


Fit for the Future prize

We want to play our part in supporting workshops rising to this challenge and to shine a spotlight on the important contribution they are making to sustainable mobility. That’s whyTotalEnergies UK has launched a new award scheme championing the sustainability initiatives of independent workshops in the UK.

Searching high and low across the UK, the Fit for the Future award will showcase the best examples of independent workshops who are taking innovative steps in their sustainability journey, leading by example, and providing inspiration for those across the aftermarket supply chain.
