Web hosting firm Memset is further reducing its carbon footprint by supplying electric bikes to staff to get to...

work.

Following efforts to make its datacentres more power efficient, the firm has now purchased Urban Mover electric bikes for staff to travel to and from the company’s offices in Guildford, Surrey.

The move comes after Memset qualified as the UK’s first carbon-neutral ISP with the Carbon Neutral Company in September 2006.

A government initiative enabling employers to offer their employees an electric bike to use for commuting to and from work, without VAT, income tax or NI payable on the bike, also prompted the decision.
