SAP Labs India launched a unique and compelling car policy to encourage its employees to Go Green, which will propel the company towards its sustainability vision. In collaboration with Mahindra Reva the company is providing an opportunity for employees to own and operate electric cars at a minimum cost. The offer for the employees include an attractive monthly cash incentive and benefits such as free charging points, reserved parking space and routine maintenance and service.

VR Ferose, Managing Director, SAP Labs India and Chetan Maini, Chief of Strategy and Technology, Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles handed over the first batch of electronic cars to four employees. SAP Labs Green Car Policy is in line with “Future Fleet”, a global research program initiated by SAP AG to test the use of electric vehicles powered by energy generated exclusively from renewable sources. SAP Labs India is aiming to be the largest contributor to this initiative with its lineup of 35 electric cars.

“We expect this forward-looking policy packed with attractive incentives to provide the initial thrust to our employees to choose electric cars over those powered by fossil fuels. I thank our employees and partners who have taken the first step in our global journey to reduce energy use,” says Ferose. “We congratulate SAP Labs on implementing a path breaking policy for adoption of emission free cars. SAP Labs has shown the way forward to the corporate sector with their pioneering efforts by including their employees and partners in this initiative,” added Maini. As part of the policy Mahindra REVA will extend the warranty and servicing period to 36 months against its standard 24 months.
