Mitie is supporting mutual insurance, pensions and investment company, Royal London, with its sustainability strategy, having installed the first 10 electric vehicle (EV) charge points at its office in Alderley Park.
In addition to the initial installation, Mitie is ensuring that Royal London’s charge points are working correctly and carrying-out any necessary maintenance as well as assisting Royal London with the ongoing monitoring of charge point usage, to track trends and determine the pace and focus of its charging infrastructure investment.
Darren Smith, Head of Group Procurement & Estates, Royal London, said: “We’re committed to playing our part in the fight against climate change. To help reach our climate pledges and reduce our operational emissions, we’ve worked with Mitie to install electric vehicle charging points in our Alderley Park office. We’re encouraging all of our people to help play their part in reducing emissions in any way they can.”
This is a landmark moment for Mitie in its objective to help public and private sector organisations reach net zero, with over 850 EV charge points installed for customers across the UK and Ireland, covering a broad range of sites including offices and manufacturing facilities. This is in addition to over 1,000 charge points Mitie has already installed at its own sites and at its employees’ homes in support of its commitment to switch its entire fleet of 7,100 vehicles to electric by 2025.
All these efforts are part of Mitie’s Plan Zero commitment to use its sustainability, as well as energy and fleet management, expertise to support public and private sector organisations reach their own decarbonisation targets. In July 2020, Mitie launched its Plan Zero Fleet Transition Service to help customers transition to electric and manage their charge point infrastructure.
Pradyumna Pandit, Managing Director, Sustainability and Energy Services, Mitie, said: “Climate change is a fight we cannot win alone, so we’re using our energy management and zero emission fleet expertise to support our customers in reaching their own sustainability goals. From the design and installation of charge points to engineering maintenance and optimisation, we’re supporting our customers throughout their entire fleet electrification journey to help accelerate the decarbonisation of Britain and Ireland.”
In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions – aided by the advice and experience of our editorial steering committee.
The results of the 2021 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
