In a week where Prime Minister, Boris Johnson stated his intention to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2030, for your employees driving around in their vehicles powered by combustion engines, how can you as an employer support them in going green?
This week’s announcement was met with a mixed response with environmental activists saying the transition is not quick enough and The Automobile Association bemoaning the UK’s lack of preparedness given the estimated need to grow the charging network by 20 times its current capacity.
Johnson’s plans are certainly ambitious given less than 1% of cars on UK roads are currently plug-ins.
As an employer, you can lead the way to improve the environment by supporting your people to go green.
A relatively hassle-free and cost-effective solution to boost your benefits could be by introducing a salary sacrifice car scheme.
Employees can access the latest hybrid or plug-in vehicles without the need for a deposit or credit check. The vehicle is fully maintained and insured, so all the employee needs to do is to charge it or add fuel.
