Butterfield reinforces its commitment to the environment with e-bike initiative
To reduce its impact on the local environment, Butterfield has introduced an electric bike initiative as an alternative and eco-friendly transport option for employees.

Butterfield employees have access to six e-bikes which they can use to travel between the Bank’s two business locations in St Peter Port. Following the recent acquisition of ABN AMRO (Channel Islands) Limited, Butterfield now has operations in Regency Court on Glategny Esplanade and Martello Court on Rue de Vega. The 15-minute walk is reduced to a mere few minutes by e-bike. 

Richard Saunders, Managing Director Channel Islands and UK at Butterfield Bank (Guernsey) Limited, said: “At Butterfield, we are committed to protecting the environment in the communities we call home. We have introduced the e-bikes to encourage employees to make more eco-friendly transportation decisions, as well as participate in some physical activity during the working day. I hope that some of them will consider getting their own e-bikes as personal transport which may in turn lead to further community benefits from both an emissions and parking perspective.”

Butterfield recently received the silver Keep Guernsey Green Award having demonstrated its commitment to the environment by putting in place various initiatives which reduce the consumption of single-use plastic, encourage sustainable living, create energy conservation solutions and tackle the global plastic pollution problem.
