Decision details

Electric Vehicle Scheme Implementation

Decision Maker: Corporate Director Resources and Trasnformation

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To award an Electric Vehicle (EV) car leasing contract as part of an employee benefit salary sacrifice scheme.





(1)            That the Electric Vehicle car leasing contract be awarded to Octopus Electric Vehicles Limited.

Reasons for the decision:

Robust due diligence has been completed to ensure that the electric vehicle scheme can be implemented with minimal risk to the council, so approval for implementation is recommended.


The electric vehicle salary sacrifice scheme is not only a benefit to CDC employees, but it also supports the Council’s target of being carbon net zero by 2030.


Alternative options considered:

Option 1: Not to implement an electric vehicle salary sacrifice scheme.  This is not the favoured option as this is a benefit that CDC can offer employees, and the scheme supports the Council’s carbon neutral target by 2030.

Option 2: Following robust due diligence, to explore risks and mitigations of the electric vehicle salary sacrifice scheme, move to implementation so it is available for CDC employees to access.
