GIB has also financed introduction of energy efficient lighting at NCP car parks across the UK, including a number located in Scotland, and GIB is in advanced discussions with Glasgow City Council to finance replacement of 10,000 old street lights in Glasgow with energy efficient LED lights, with the longer term aim of replacing up to 50,000 lights across the city.
