Rebranded S2K invests in reducing carbon emissions

April 17, 2024



Newly rebranded S2K has committed to replacing its ageing diesel fleet with hybrid vehicles, with the aim of improving the environment and crime detection.

The company, based in Avonmouth and formerly known as Security 2000 is investing in the new vehicles as it looks for ways to actively reduce its carbon emissions.

According to S2K, as well as the environmental benefit, the technology gives the company an advantage in the detection of crime, as drivers can switch to ‘stealth mode’ when approaching a property.

Future-proofing S2K

“This investment is all about doing the right thing,” said Richard Gabriel, Business Unit Director, S2K.

“It’d be more economical for us to replace our vehicles with newer diesels but going hybrid will reduce our carbon footprint and future-proof our fleet.

“Hybrid technology also means we can switch to electric-only as we approach a premise, meaning our final two minutes of approach are completed in stealth mode.

“Our vehicles are also fitted with CCTV which transmits live to our control room, so our team can park strategically close by and alert the authorities while capturing images of criminals at or leaving a crime scene.”

As part of its rebranding, S2K is developing a mobile app for its customers and staff to complete its transformation to a paperless, fully agile business.

Cutting carbon emissions

“This is another element of our drive to future-proof the business,” added Gabriel.

“The app will provide an automated reporting service so we can provide our customers with instant, real-time updates.

“Plus going paperless is another way to cut our carbon emissions.

“The name Security 2000 sounded dated and this is now all about a company fit for the 21st century.”
