Salary sacrifice is the answer to cleaner motoring, says Fleet Evolution

Fleet Evolution has claimed that salary sacrifice could be the answer to cleaner motoring after the emissions scandal earlier this year.

The scandal saw Volkswagen cars being fitted with a ‘defeat device’ to make them appear more environmentally-friendly on emissions tests.

Andrew Leech, managing director of salary sacrifice provider Fleet Evolution, said: “There’s a real push for cleaner motoring now, not only in the wake of the big ‘diesel dupe’, but also after the Paris Climate Change Summit and the new rules on CO2 reporting for FTSE 250 companies.

"We believe that salary sacrifice can really help meet that demand for more environmentally-friendly vehicles, while offering a number of tax-efficient benefits that will save businesses and their employees money.”

 Fleet Evolution claims that salary sacrifice cars typically reduce the CO2 output of employees’ motoring activities by up to 42% (both at work, and on private journeys).
