Corporate social responsibility

Our approach

Corporate Social Responsibility is a broad topic that affects LeasePlan locally and globally at different levels. It plays an important role and each Group company is responsible for minimising the environmental impact of its operations.

The LeasePlan Code of Conduct provides our employees worldwide with a framework for everyday business decisions.

When it comes to the external community, many LeasePlan companies are actively involved in local community projects. In addition each also support our global ChildPlan projects where LeasePlan is dedicated to supporting children in less privileged countries.

As far as fleets are concerned, one of the most important issues to consider is CO2 emissions and their impact on global warming. In addressing this issue, we guide our clients with a series of measures to reduce or compensate CO2 emissions.

At LeasePlan we obviously also take our responsibility in protecting our planet. LeasePlan uses the EU emissions reduction target as a reference for its own fleet, and compensates for the possible difference between target and reality by investing in offsetting activities.

Our community

Here at LeasePlan Ireland we support a wide range of charities and community organisations. Our nominated charities are Welcome Home and the Simon Community. Both of these charities deal with the difficult area of homelessness and provide invaluable support and services to the individuals they work with and the wider community. LeasePlan are proud to support both of these charities and to be able to make a difference to their workforce.

In addition, LeasePlan has worked with Special Olympics Ireland, Barnados, Blackrock Hospice, Cystic Fybrosis Ireland, IRFU Charitable Trust, Irish Cancer Society, Irish Heart Foundation, The Irish Hospice Foundation, MS Ireland, NCBI and Save The Children.

The environment - our approach

Encouraged by shareholders, governments and consumers a growing amount of companies try to integrate corporate responsibility into their business and strategy. LeasePlan has developed some initiatives as well.

As far as fleets are concerned, one of the most important issues to consider is CO2 emissions and their impact on global warming. In addressing this issue, LeasePlan has introduced the GreenPlan initiative.

We also recognise our responsibilities to wider society and the environment by adhering to the following:

  • We are dedicated to conducting our business in a responsible and sustainable way. We aim for a profitable operation with added value for all our stakeholders, while managing the social, economical and environmental impact. We do this by striving to balance the interests of people, planet and profit.
  • We support the development of technologies that help minimise the effect of driving on the environment and contribute to solutions that anticipate resource scarcity.
  • We act in accordance with relevant local and internationally recognised environmental standards.
  • We develop sustainable business models and products.
  • We seek ways to improve our own eco-footprint as a business.
  • We contribute positively to the development of our industry.
