Heathrow Airport to incentivize employees to drive low emission vehicles

LinkedIn +

London Heathrow Airport will launch a new program to incentivize its 6,000 direct employees to acquire a low emission vehicle. Colleagues will be able to pay for the car through a monthly gross salary reduction, which will ensure they receive savings in income tax and national insurance. The program will also offer discounts from car manufacturers for leasing low emission vehicles.

The new measure is part of Heathrow 2.0, the airport’s new sustainability strategy, which aims to reduce emissions from all sources of activities, both on and off airport. The announcement also supports London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s goals for improving air quality and working toward making London a zero-carbon city.

Emma Gilthorpe, executive director, London Heathrow Airport, said, “The new mayoral transport strategy sets environmental challenges that we need to meet – and we will. By working in partnership with others, by investing in technological innovation and by being prepared to take the lead sometimes, we can expand Heathrow in the right way. This is not – and must not be – a choice between the economy and the environment.”
