Vehicle information provider HPI has called on car traders to ensure their stock is certified via its CO2 Certificate scheme.
The body has reminded businesses that gaining accreditation for their vehicle stock via the initiative can aid the environment as well as allowing them to provide more information to potential clients.
Motor trade organisation the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, which was developed by the government, Retail Motor Industry Federation and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, has already voiced its support for the scheme, in which 2,000 sellers are already taking part.
Daniel Burgess, automotive director for HPI, said it is a “great green tool” for dealers who wish to provide consumers with the relevant environmental information they demand.
He said it will “enable used car buyers to accurately compare vehicles and make an informed decision at the point of sale”.
Last month, motor retailer Carcraft revealed that efficiency benefits may be increasingly influencing customers towards purchasing diesel vehicles.
