On Sustainability Day, Business Lease Nederland, Ridderkerk-based greengrocery Van Oers United and Stichting Band op Spanning (Correct Tyre Pressure Foundation) joined forces to install a special tyre pump at the Verenambacht industrial estate. The tyre pump is the first of its kind in the Rijnmond region and provides drivers with an easy way to keep their tyres inflated to the correct pressure. Correct tyre pressure saves nearly 37 litres of fuel per vehicle per year. If all vehicles at the Verenambacht industrial estate were to use the pump, they would realise a benefit of at least 80,000 euros each year.
The tyre pump operates entirely on solar energy and helps users maintain proper tyre pressure. Immediately after use, the pump displays the number of litres of fuel saved, the amount of reduced CO2 emissions, the number of kilometres the tyres will now last, and how many euros saved in total, making users more aware of the importance of correct tyre pressure - proof positive that car leasing and sustainability go hand in hand.
