Securex: ‘company cars still far too polluting’
Almost nine out of ten company cars (87,7%) are still diesel cars. The number of hybrid vehicles is only slowly growing. The good news is that the average CO2 emissions are slightly going down: 2,2% in two years time, according to figures from HR service provider, Securex.
“The number of environmentally friendly cars is still small”, says Iris Tolpe, director business consultancy. “Diesel is still popular among employees. Employers, however, don’t seem to be really worried about a greener fleet.”
“There might be several explanations for the small number of clean cars” says mobility expert, Tim Blanckaert. “Lack of support for employers, lack of charging stations, leasing companies waiting to see which way the wind will blow, expensive cars and the uncertainty of the second-hand value of those cars.”
Maybe the mobility budget can contribute to a greener fleet. Employees can choose between bike, motorbike or scooter, but he can also opt for public transport or shared mobility solutions.
