Save money and the environment with green leasing!
It is very important for SEB to contribute to the improvement our living environment and we therefore advise you to think about the environment when you purchase a car. Purchasing a more environmentally friendly car is good for nature as well as your wallet: you can save a considerable amount of money on fuel, insurance and leasing! We consider a car more eco-friendly if its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions do not exceed 110 g/km. The less CO2 a car emits when driven, the greener it is.
The advantages of green cars
A car that is more environment-friendly helps you save fuel, money and nature, and allows you to get better lease terms from SEB Liising. People who conclude a SEB Liising green lease will also receive a better insurance offer from PZU*.
Seven recommendations for driving in an environmentally friendly manner
Only start you car right before you must start driving. Adjusting the mirrors and fastening the safety belt do not need a running engine.
Find the lowest suitable speed for each gear and use it
Accelerate and change gears briskly, but there is no need to speed.
Try to stop and start as little as possible. Keep an eye on the traffic lights after the nearest ones in order to stay in the green wave.
Turn off the engine when you stop for a longer time, e.g. at level crossings. Your car will then use less fuel and keep the ambient air cleaner.
Air out the car before driving in summer, so the conditioner does not have to work extra. The exact quantity of fuel saved in this manner depends on the car, but may be as much as ten percent.
Check the tyre pressure: if it's too low, it will increase the fuel consumption considerably and makes the car harder to control.
Seven recommendations for an environmentally friendly life
Use rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries instead of alkaline ones or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, because alkaline batteries start leaking and pollute groundwater.
Use energy-saving light bulbs, because they need about 75% less energy and last longer.
Do not use Styrofoam dishes: this material does not decompose naturally.
Use paper towels as rarely as possible. You could use washable fabric cloths and towels instead in order to save trees. If you do use paper towels, make sure they are environmentally friendly ones.
Take your own carrier bag when you go shopping or use the environmentally friendly paper or plastic bags offered by shops.
Use natural cleaning agents instead of chemical ones. Chemical cleaning agents are a health hazard and harmful for the environment. The best natural cleaning agents for home use are cooking soda, vinegar and salt. A clean home must not be a health hazard.
Do not buy PVC accessories and toys. PVC does not decompose naturally and it poses a health hazard, especially for children. Check what materials have been used to make the toys you buy for your children.
