Commercial vehicle manufacturer Iveco has partnered with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions to provide financing for green vehicles across Europe.

Preferential financing has been made available to purchasers of Iveco vehicle with a Euro 6 engine, or running on alternative fuels or electricity.

The offer is targeted at customers in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. The financing will be provided through Iveco dealers by CNH Industrial Capital Europe, a joint venture between BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions and CNH Industrial, the holding company owning Iveco.

Pierre Lahutte, Iveco brand president, said: “Iveco has a long-standing commitment to sustainable transport. We have pioneered alternative traction technologies for over 20 years with the objective of providing our customers with vehicles that enable them to be more sustainable, while operating profitably.

With the green finance schemes, we take our commitment a step further, by helping our customers’ energy transition as they make their fleets more environmentally-friendly. This initiative with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions is testament to what can be achieved when two players from different industries join forces for such an important cause.”

Charlotte Dennery, chief executive officer of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, said: “As part of its 2020 development plan, BNP Paribas clearly indicated its will to strengthen its commitment to the energy transition and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. As the group’s specialised entity in equipment finance, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions is a natural partner to encourage companies to promote responsible equipment.”
