Ecclesiastical Insurance Goes Electric

Benefact Group – the owner of Ecclesiastical Insurance – has today revealed the launch of its first electric car scheme in line with its enterprising plans to reduce its carbon emissions and reach net zero by 2040. 

The salary sacrifice scheme will enable the group’s colleagues to lease electric cars, helping to reduce their carbon emissions. In addition, Benefact Group is offering £1,000 towards the cost of installing a charging point at home.

In a Press release, it was noted that the new scheme is part of a wave of measures from the Gloucester-based firm intended to reduce carbon emissions, including moving to more energy-efficient offices. The group has partnered with SG Fleet to offer the scheme to all UK colleagues.

Commenting on the news, Richard Coleman, MD at Ecclesiastical Insurance, said: “As a responsible insurer, we’re committed to making a positive social and environmental impact in our communities. We have set a goal to reach net zero by 2040 and we’re making good progress including moving to offices that are more energy efficient.

“But we’re also committed to helping our people to reduce their impact too – this scheme allows employees to commute with much less effect on the environment and our communities.”

Last year, the group declared its climate commitment to achieve net zero by 2040.
