Corporate EV rental is on the rise

In an era of heightened environmental consciousness, businesses are increasingly embracing sustainability as a core value. Among the growing number of companies committed to reducing their carbon footprint are those certified as B Corporations (B Corps) and those with Net Zero targets. These businesses are not only focused on their products and operations but also on how their employees travel, especially when it comes to business trips. One impactful way they can reduce their carbon footprint is by renting electric vehicles (EVs) for business travel. Here’s why:

Reducing Carbon Footprint

Electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions, making them significantly cleaner than traditional gasoline or diesel vehicles. By choosing to rent EVs for business travel, B Corps, Net Zero and companies seeking to reduce their impact can directly reduce their carbon footprint associated with transportation. This aligns with their commitment to sustainability and demonstrates their dedication to making environmentally conscious choices in every aspect of their operations.

Supporting Renewable Energy

Many companies have committed to using 100% renewable energy to power their operations. Renting EVs, and even integrating them into their own company fleet, aligns with this goal, as EVs can be charged using electricity from renewable sources. By opting for electric rentals, companies can ensure that the energy used to power their business travel aligns with their commitment to clean energy and ensures that they’re able to “walk the talk” so to speak.

Cost-Effective and Efficient

Renting EVs for business travel can be far more cost-effective to businesses. EVs have lower operating and maintenance costs, and many rental companies, including ours, offer competitive rates for electric vehicles. With charging rates sitting at a fraction of combustion vehicle refuelling, costs for business travel can be significantly reduced. Additionally, EVs can be more efficient for certain types of travel, such as urban or short-distance trips. When returning an EV with East Coast, you can even return it with as low as 20% charge without incurring any fees.

Enhancing Employee Engagement

Many employees are passionate about sustainability and environmental stewardship. Providing them with the opportunity to travel in electric vehicles can enhance their engagement and pride in their company’s commitment to sustainability. It can also serve as a meaningful way for employees to contribute to their company’s sustainability goals.

Renting electric vehicles for business travel is a practical and impactful way for companies to align their transportation practices with their sustainability goals. By choosing EVs, these companies can reduce their carbon footprint, support renewable energy, promote sustainable practices, save money and enhance employee engagement—all while demonstrating leadership in the transition to a more sustainable future.
