Keeping drivers safe while on the road is an essential part of our business. To reduce the risk of accidents, LeasePlan’s distracted driving policy restricts any employee from using a cell phone, including a hands-free device, or texting while driving a LeasePlan vehicle. In addition to launching this policy, LeasePlan encourages all employees to sign a safe driving pledge and invites family members to commit to safer driving practices. SafePlan, our safe driving program, encourages our clients to implement similar policies.
We recognize the importance of making this planet better. That is why we developed GreenPlan, a worldwide service to support the reduction of emissions. GreenPlan is an opportunity to work side-by-side with our customers to achieve a consistent and long-term green fleet approach. This was the first global green fleet management initiative in our industry.
We passionately and actively support local communities through LeasePlan Cares, a group created and managed by LeasePlan employees. We offer our time and volunteers to many organizations throughout the year.
Through our health and wellness initiative, HealthyU, LeasePlan promotes fun ways to stay healthy and active. Outside of work hours, employees volunteer their time to lead or organize running and walking groups, weight-loss programs, biking groups and league sports teams. We also hold regular Lunch and Learn sessions for employees to learn about nutrition, exercise techniques, stress reduction and more.
