JT has become one of the first local firms to join EVie's Corporate Partner Programme, in a move it hopes will get more of its staff using green transport to get to work.
The programme will see the telecoms firm's staff offered a 20% discount on using e-bike and e-vehicles to help meet targets of reducing carbon emissions.
The scheme offers JT team members discounted access to EVieBikes, EVie cars and vans, bike servicing and the BlueBike subscription that provides full-time use of a bike.
Tom Noel, JT’s Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability, said: “We see this as a really positive step towards sustainable business travel. We already have a bike discount scheme where we provide our people with help towards buying a bike and the ongoing maintenance, but this partnership means they don’t have to own their own bike.
"Instead, they get the benefit of leading a healthier lifestyle through the scheme which is also helping JT meet its sustainability goals and contributes to the reduction of air pollution on Channel Island roads – it’s a win all round.”
Jamie Kelly, CEO of EVie, said EVie sees its "corporate partner programme as a way of making a real difference to reducing carbon emissions."
"Our programme aims to provide convenient, healthy and sustainable shared use travel. It helps by reducing the need to have private parking and cuts down on the use and demand for public parking spaces. To date, EVie users have displaced 55 tonnes of CO2," he added.
