PwC urges drivers to join tree scheme

COMPANY car drivers working for PricewaterhouseCoopers are being encouraged to go green.

The company is urging its 2,600 drivers to sponsor the planting of enough trees to counteract the CO2 emissions produced by their vehicles under the CarbonNeutral scheme.

It expects the scheme to be popular among drivers and has already reserved two acres of land in Aberdeenshire, which it expects to fill in just a year.

It takes three trees to neutralise the emissions from an average fleet car.

PwC business support manager Stephen Forster said: 'Of course we're not expecting our employees to actually go and plant the tree themselves but for a small amount, on average £2 a month, they can contribute towards the planting of a bio-diverse forest in Scotland.'
