Mitie Accelerates EV Rollout

:
Mitie is a step closer towards realising its Clean Van Commitment to switch 20 per cent of one of the UK's largest vehicle fleets to electric by the end of this year following the delivery of its 250th electric vehicle to a team at Heathrow Airport.

 

The addition of a Nissan e-NV200 electric van to a fleet of 16 electric cars and vans deployed on the Heathrow site will also support the ambitious Heathrow 2.0 Sustainability Strategy which includes a goal to establish an airside ultra-low emissions zone by 2025.

 

Andrew Chen, Head of Emissions Strategy for Heathrow Airport, says:

"We are proud to be welcoming Mitie’s 250th electric vehicle to Heathrow, which not only marks a significant milestone for one of our biggest suppliers but also helps Team Heathrow to reduce airside emissions and improve local air quality.

 

"Heathrow has one of the biggest electric vehicle charging networks in Europe and we are driven to help all of our airside users reduce emissions and improve efficiencies across the airport. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Mitie on their EV program and other sustainability goals."

 

Mitie's Director of Sustainability and EV Strategy, Simon King, adds:

"Our electric vehicle commitment is picking up pace as we rapidly rollout electric vehicles all over Britain, putting 75 new EVs on the roads every month.

 

"However, if the UK is going to meet crucial targets to reduce carbon and minimise the effects of climate change, we need more businesses, like Heathrow Airport, as well as government departments and city councils, to join us in the switch to electric vehicles. The first step to achieving this is ensuring an adequate number of charge points, in the places where they are needed most, are installed all over the UK, so that drivers are sure they can charge where and when they need to."
