Scope & Scale

Turnover £3.5bn; 200 dealerships; 183 Service, Accident & Parts Centres




Founded in 1954, Arnold Clark is one of the largest car dealer groups in Europe. Aware of their Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) obligations – a mandatory emission trading scheme that places significant energy monitoring and reporting burdens on organisations of their size – Arnold Clark turned to Envantage, whose approach to mandatory regulations is rooted in ensuring full compliance, while also delivering maximum benefits for the client – from saving money to embedding low carbon behaviours.

Solution & Outcome

Envantage managed Arnold Clark’s CRC from the beginning of the scheme until the scheme closed in 2019, closely monitoring the company’s ever-changing portfolio of more than 200 sites and passing an external Environment Agency CRC audit, for which very positive feedback was received from the Environment Agency auditor with particular reference to the quality of information provided.


“Our CRC obligations have been well managed and I’ve been impressed by the knowledge and prompt support received from Envantage. Their people have developed a first-class service and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
