Tusker’s aim has always been to minimise the impact of having a new car on the environment. For over 10 years now, each car that Tusker puts on the road is carbon neutral, with the tailpipe emissions offset at an internationally accredited project in a developing country.
Tusker has been in talks with manufacturers to plan the adoption of electric and hybrid technology on new and existing models of cars in the UK. Following those talks, there has been an increase in the numbers of vehicles available with lower emissions now available in the UK and on the Car Benefit Scheme. Pressure from Tusker has also meant a reduction in prices that has made the cars more affordable on the scheme and developments in technology have ensured their attractiveness to car scheme drivers. As a result, Tusker are able to offer ULEV-only schemes or lower emissions schemes, to new and existing customers.
In the past year, Tusker has launched schemes at large organisations including ENGIE, Cornwall Council, Leeds City Council, Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Trust, all where cars are limited to being 75g/CO2 or lower. Dramatically reducing the impact of having a new car on the planet. Having a green car scheme is compliant with a number of organisational objectives to reduce carbon emissions and is a feel-good for all involved.
Tusker will continue to identify opportunities to reduce carbon emissions in all aspects of their operation. It’s part of the company’s ethos and continues to be central to planning and development within the organisation.
