The car leasing firm is currently assessing its carbon footprint by taking its fleet of 45 cars and aspects like office use of heating and electricity into account. Once this has been established, the company will select a carbon-offsetting scheme to which it will make a donation.
Andrew Cope, managing director, said: ‘Our most important role is to advise other companies to have a more environmentally-friendly fleet, from the kind of cars they choose to how the drivers drive. Obviously, it is harder to do that if we have not done it with our own fleet.’
Although the scheme will cover the mileage of its company car drivers, a salary sacrifice charity donation scheme will also be introduced, which will allow employees to offset their personal mileage if they wish.
