In early 2021, our parent company, LeasePlan Corporation, established a new ESG Action Group to identify gaps and opportunities in our existing ESG activities and to formulate a ‘Zero means zero’ sustainability strategy update. This followed an exhaustive review of our current policies and oversight, which was conducted in 2020 alongside a detailed survey of stakeholder needs and expectations.
The full ‘Zero means zero’ sustainability strategy update will be published later this year, and will address stakeholders’ material concerns while outlining a clear roadmap for how we will achieve net zero (scope 1, 2 and 3) emissions across LeasePlan by 2030. The update and its related KPIs will also be outlined in an annual, standalone sustainability report, to be published towards the end of the year.
Here in the UK, the strategy will be coordinated by our Environmental Management Committee, which comprises members of our Executive team as well as representatives from key parts of the business, including facilities and procurement. It is also be complemented by the work of our other ESG leads, whose roles range from community engagement to diversity and inclusion.
