Ground Control has recently introduced a new initiative in a bid to entice their employees to go green. The organisation is offering the Nissan Leaf as a company car via salery sacrifice.
The Leaf is a fully electric powered car which means employees are able to save money, while also being exceptionally beneficial for the environment. Peter Brown, Senior Winter Maintenance Coordinator, is one of the first four people to sign up to the new scheme;
“They’re great, really fun to drive, spacious, comfortable and so quiet! Essentially, it enables us to get a brand new car and save money from doing so. Zero road tax, no fuel costs and only needing to spend around £2 to charge it up. It’s Incredible!”
Dale West, Assistant Accountant, Matt Nokes, Senior Landscape Architect and David Laws, Management Accountant, are the other members to have signed up to the scheme so far.
The zero-emission cars are yet another example of our continuous mission to better the environment. The government has also introduced the Plug-in Car Grant initiative to promote the use of electric cars across the UK, providing significant savings on costs.
