◇Award comments
"Thank you for selecting us for the VT Group Sustainability Award 2023. We are all surprised to receive notification of the award.
We are now focusing on the appeal of electric vehicles in the wake of growing interest in the rising cost of living, as represented by electricity and fuel prices. We believe that promoting and expanding sales of electric vehicles is the mission of vehicle sales companies in the area of environmental issues, and we would like to promote new ways of buying while responding to customer needs.
In our environmental protection and human resources development activities, we strive to maintain a comfortable working environment within the company, and we are always looking for ways to contribute to the communities and societies in which we operate."

◇Award comments
"I am delighted to receive the Sustainability Award on behalf of all of our colleagues at Wessex Garages. We will continue to do everything we can to improve Our Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance credentials, working with our business partners and energy suppliers to ensure we balance both the economic savings as well as contributing to less waste.
The efforts of our colleagues so far have resulted in a 17% saving on electricity alone, and we continue to explore new ways of reducing the spiraling costs across our business.
It is vital that the VT Holdings continues to promote the message of sustainability across all aspects of the business as a positive message to our customers and partners. The monetary award will be used to finalize the purchase of our recycling bins for responsible waste management at all sites."
