About Us

Zenith is the UK’s leading independent leasing, fleet management and vehicle outsourcing business.

Our vision is to decarbonise the UK vehicle parc by eliminating tailpipe emissions.

We’ll achieve this by providing sustainable and innovative vehicle mobility solutions. We’re always asking “what’s next?”, looking forward, finding ways to achieve our goals and improve the industry we’re a part of.

Since 1989 we’ve made acquisitions to broaden our portfolio of services to our customers whilst continuing to grow organically – our total fleet now has over 162k units, and we won’t be stopping there. We have a clear and compelling 5 point strategy for achieving our vision. What’s next? Join us and make it happen.

Sustainability & Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

Sustainability continues to be front and centre for us at Zenith. We’re proud to be a carbon neutral business, one committed to the Science Based Targets initiative for reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions. And we’re proud to have received accreditation from Sustainalytics which sets a new benchmark for our Environmental, Social and Governance reporting.

Our fleet is important to us, and so we’ve committed to spending at least £475 million on expanding our battery electric vehicle fleet. Continuing our journey to convert more and more of our fleet to electric alternatives. And it doesn’t end there, our brand-new head office has achieved an Excellent BREEAM rating for its sustainable credentials. Like we said, sustainability is a driving force for us all at Zenith.

Corporate social responsibility

Giving something back is at the heart of our philosophy. We support the communities local to our UK-wide locations, through charity days and school partnerships.

For 2021 our people selected the charity Mind to support with a variety of fundraising activities including our very own Zenith Olympics and a 10k run. We’ve also given our time and energy to support the Leeds Piano Festival, Children in Need and Comic Relief as well as proudly providing four HGVs to support the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

In 2022 we’ve chosen to support the charity Dementia UK with a variety of fundraising activities.
