Do AS&Kers dream of electric cars?

Electric cars
17 th Jun, 2021 Simon Gee, Agency Head

We’re committed to doing all we can to reduce our carbon footprint – at home as well as for our clients. One way we’re doing this internally is by offering our staff a salary sacrifice scheme for electric cars. This is a government scheme that allows people to lease a new electric car with payments from gross salary, before tax and national insurance, thus making a substantial saving.

We’re pleased to be partnering with Octopus EV via their new Electric Dreams offering. We already get our 100% renewable electricity supply for our Camden office from Octopus, so choosing them for our salary sacrifice scheme made sense.

Obviously, with the company being based in London, not everyone has need of a car. And even for those that do, replacing their current car is not a regular occurrence. However, our first two new cars are on order, and we look forward to more of our people joining the electric car revolution, helping the environment, and saving money through salary sacrifice at the same time. 

This also links to another benefit we offer, Climate Perks, where staff can claim an extra day of annual leave if they take the train – or drive an electric car – on holiday rather than flying. 

And, as we look forward to the return of in-person conferences and educational events, we’re committed to helping our clients reduce the impact of their activities – perhaps by driving electric to events too.
