Obiter has gone green, even to the extent we’ve learned which bins to use for the recycling.

So we applaud any firm doing its bit to help the environment and make sure there is a planet still here for future generations.

National practice Foot Anstey is one of a growing number of businesses offering staff the chance to reduce their carbon footprint through an electric car scheme. The 600 employees are able to pay some of their pre-tax salary towards monthly payments and lease these green machines, roughly on the same lines as childcare vouchers or a bike scheme.

The move has come through a link-up with car benefit company Tusker and has already been joined by Foot Anstey’s chief technology officer Dave Bloor.

‘I am passionate about the environment and taking personal steps to reduce my family’s carbon footprint,’ said Bloor. ‘This scheme makes this aspiration more realistic by enabling me to switch from a diesel SUV to an all-electric SUV.’
