VP Bank promotes the switch to electric vehicles for its employees

Reading time: 2 Min
VP Bank is entering into a partnership with a premium provider of electric vehicles, thereby offering its employees in Liechtenstein and Switzerland more environmentally friendly mobility.

As an internationally oriented banking group, VP Bank attaches particular importance to its home market of Liechtenstein and Switzerland. VP Bank is expanding its regional mobility management and now offers its employees the opportunity to purchase a MINI or BMW electric vehicle at particularly attractive conditions.

Within the scope of an exclusive cooperation with the Liechtenstein BMW and MINI partner, Max Heidegger AG, VP Bank employees have access to an exceptionally attractive financing model for the purchase of an electric vehicle.

The partnership enables employees in the Switzerland / Liechtenstein region to enjoy progressive mobility and make their personal contribution to lower-emission driving. In addition, incentives are provided to make electromobility accessible to a broader public.

The goal of VP Bank's mobility management is to encourage and promote efficient and socially compatible mobility. Already more than a decade ago, a mobility concept was introduced in Liechtenstein that provides financial incentives for the use of public transport and a graduated fee system for employee parking spaces. The mobility management also offers the free use of Mobility Cars. The mobility concept has been successful: the goals of reducing car traffic, creating greater environmental awareness and promoting public transport have been achieved. The concept is considered exemplary for the region and was awarded the "Zurich Climate Prize" in 2011. The prize rewards measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.

Dr Lars Kaiser, Head Group Sustainability of VP Bank: "The consistent inclusion of sustainability in our daily activities is an important cornerstone of our Strategy 2026. In this way, we support the shift in thinking towards lower-emission mobility through electric vehicles, which in Liechtenstein can be powered by 100% renewable energies thanks to the LKW Liechtensteinische Kraftwerke."
