Our expertise in sustainable finance

Supporting the climate transition with Lombard

Funding sustainable assets since 2010

We could support your business when investing in a wide range of sustainable assets

How could Lombard help your business achieve climate goals

As consumers are increasingly choosing businesses which operate sustainably and London's ULEZ zone is expanding, renewable asset finance and electric vehicles could help your business.

Zero emissions vehicles

Zero emissions vehicles benefit from:
  • Reduced fuel and maintenance costs
  • Exempt from London congestion charge and ULEZ
  • Workplace charging installation grants
  • Plug-In Vehicle Government Grants available for cars, vans and commercial vehicles. View the grants available here.
  • Reduced tax - offset 100% of the cost of electric cars against taxable profits 
  • Reduced National Insurance contributions for zero emissions company cars due to lower benefit in kind rates
  • Employees are not subject to the Car Fuel Benefit Charge if the company car is an EV
