Fleet electrification boosts sustainability objectives
Work is ongoing to electrify the Infinis vehicle fleet, following the success of a pilot project in 2022. By switching from diesel to electric vans, the business forecasts an 82 per cent reduction per vehicle in CO2e emissions.
Eight new electric vehicles (EVs) were ordered last year. The first van was delivered to Lancaster in April, and further EVs have since been delivered to sites across the UK.
As part of the company's commitment to fleet electrification, Infinis has also installed 22kW dual electric vehicle charging points at 16 sites, using the renewable power generated on them. Work is now progressing to add chargers at the Northampton headquarters. These charging points can be used for company vans or any employee EVs.
Su Ruthven, head of health, safety, quality, environmental compliance and sustainability at Infinis, said: "Electrifying the company fleet is a positive step forward to achieve our operational sustainability objectives.
"This approach fully aligns with our business ethos to reduce emissions. It also complements other initiatives such as EV leasing, the Cycle to Work initiative and Employee Green Benefits Scheme."
