Net Zero Consultancy, TEAM Energy, launches electric vehicle scheme to help employees transition to driving green

We have introduced an Electric Vehicle (EV) Salary Sacrifice Scheme to make the transition to greener commuting more accessible to our employees.

Working in partnership with Octopus Energy to deliver the scheme, it offers employees the opportunity to save up to 40% on a brand new electric car and reduce their carbon footprint.

This exciting news is in line with our Carbon Reduction Strategy which will lead us to achieve net zero emissions by 2030, and comes just a few months after we announced our carbon neutral status.

Our CEO, Simon Miles, commented on the launch of the scheme:

As both an Employee Ownership Trust and a Net Zero Consultancy, we want to do what is best to help both our employees and the planet. The introduction of this scheme demonstrates our commitment to being an energy conscious organisation that is supporting employees in reducing their own carbon emissions.

With this new workplace benefit, we are enabling employees to make greener choices, by removing some of the barriers they face when looking to invest in an EV. The scheme offers a wide range of vehicle and contract options, so employees can make the right choice for them.

The scheme provides employees with a car, a free home charger, or free public charging credits, and maintenance and servicing to help our employees make their transition to driving green successful.

Timothy Holman, Head of Operations and net zero strategy lead commented:

Our employees are just as passionate about the planet as we are, and we want to support them in taking steps to reduce their carbon emissions in more accessible ways. Knowing that employee commuting accounts for 31% of our Scope 3 emissions, it is imperative that we help remove the barriers of transitioning to greener commuting methods for employees to enable us to reduce their impact on our carbon footprint.

This EV Salary Sacrifice scheme is just one of the many initiatives in our business Carbon Reduction Strategy that will help us to realise our ambition to become net zero by 2030. In addition, we are hoping to implement EV charging points in our office car park so that employees can charge their cars, for free, whilst at work.

By introducing this scheme, we are focusing on the wider environmental impacts of our commuting emissions and implementing ways we can reduce these to meet our net zero ambitions, whilst also helping employees make sustainable choices.
