One SMG supports climate action and offsetting carbon emissions through native reforestation. Through our Native Pathways Project, we work closely with Greenfleet Australia. StreetFleet, One SMG’s fleet management and leasing business, has offset 588 tonnes of carbon emissions (since October 2019) with the purchase of native trees across Australia and New Zealand.
More information about the Native Pathways Project and how carbon offsets are calculated can be found on our StreetFleet website.
Smiths Bodyshops use only water-based and low VOC paints. This means the paints we use contain less Volatile Organic Compounds than traditional paints used in crash repairs. The result is less toxins in the air and a more environmentally friendly workshop. Low VOC paints still achieve a fantastic finish for our customers while also protecting the environment.
