SOGO launches carbon-neutral leasing

By / 4 weeks ago / UK News / No Comments

Flexible leasing firm SOGO is helping customers to run greener fleets to support their carbon reduction goals on the road to net-zero.

Karl Howkins, managing director of SOGO

The company is providing a range of services to help drivers make a move to electric vehicles (EVs) and it has expanded its fleet of EVs, offering competitive lease terms from one to 12 months.

In a first for the UK vehicle leasing and rental industry, SOGO is offering a carbon-neutral fleet across petrol, diesel and EVs by teaming up with BP as a major participant in its Target Neutral programme, which helps fleet customers measure, reduce and offset their carbon emissions.

It has also partnered with Rightcharge to help drivers identify and install the right charging unit for their type of usage and budget. The partnership also enables drivers to access government grants and green electricity tariffs, along with smart billing options that enable EV charging to be split from the driver’s household bill to make reimbursement for company car mileage easier.

Customers will also be provided with an Electric Juice Network card to access one of the UK’s largest network of public chargers.

Commenting on the move Karl Howkins, managing director of SOGO, said: “We aim to lead the industry in providing greener mobility solutions for companies that are seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. We have developed a comprehensive range of services that makes it easier than ever to move to an electric vehicle, and for occasions when an EV isn’t viable, we have everything from LCVs to SUVs available on ultra-flexible terms.
