Royal Mail appoints Novuna to drive low-emission mobility adoption

Royal Mail Group has chosen to partner with Novuna Vehicle Solutions to provide their 120,000+ employees with access to electric vehicles (EV), supporting the company’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040.
The partnership will create one of the largest company car salary sacrifice schemes in the UK, with Royal Mail choosing to partner with Novuna Vehicle Solutions for their vast experience in managing company car and mixed vehicle fleets, with long standing customers such as Amey and DEFRA also transitioning their company car fleets. Royal Mail employees will benefit from a cost-effective way to access low-emission vehicles, with a wide range of new and used EVs, offered through a flexible salary sacrifice scheme.  
Employees will have access to a tailor-made EV Hub, providing guidance on making the switch to electric and a new market leading internal ordering portal, with vehicle benefits including bespoke insurance provided by Howden Insurance UK. To further support the transition to electric vehicles, employees will have the option to choose different smart chargers for installation at their homes, included in their vehicle monthly contract.
In its new partnership with Royal Mail, Novuna Vehicle Solutions will also leverage used vehicles as part of end-to-end decarbonisation leasing options, providing employees with a cost-effective way to make the switch to electric vehicles.
The appointment follows a series of recent new partnerships for Novuna Vehicle Solutions including Wickes, Saint-Gobain UK and Quooker, as it continues to deepen its relationships with UK businesses and provide innovative solutions to support corporate transition plans.
Jon Lawes, Managing Director at Novuna Vehicle Solutions, said:
“This appointment is a recognition of our ability to deliver a comprehensive salary sacrifice solution at scale. We are committed to providing innovative and accessible solutions that enable organisations like Royal Mail to achieve their sustainability goals while empowering their employees.
“As the urgency of the transition towards sustainable transportation grows, offering accessible options for employees is vital to accelerate the pathway to net-zero. This programme is a testament to our shared vision of low-emission mobility, and we look forward to collaborating with Royal Mail to further enhance electric and low-emission vehicle accessibility for all employees.”
