UK-based FM company signs up for EV 100
Date: 23-09-2019

Mitie, the UK’s leading FM and professional services company, has signed up to EV100 - a global initiative by international nonprofit The Climate Group, which brings together companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, to make electric transport the ‘new normal’ by 2030. As part of the initiative, Mitie has committed to transitioning its fleet of 5,300 vehicles to electric by 2030. This is in addition to its commitment to ensure 20 per cent of its small van and car fleet is electric prior to the end of 2020. By the end of 2020, Mitie will also have installed 800 new charging points at both its offices and client locations, as well as employee’s homes. Mitie is also in discussions with suppliers to negotiate a deal for renewable energy, which it plans to make available to its electric vehicle drivers. This builds on the deal already in place for REGO backed power to the charging points at Mitie offices. Mitie’s 2020 pledge is already under way with 400 cars and small vans ordered. Simon King, Fleet and Procurement Director said, “We are incredibly proud to be leading the way in transitioning our fleet to electric vehicles. We want to encourage more companies to follow suit, which is why supporting initiatives such as EV100 are increasingly important. We are keen to support likeminded companies who also want to reap the same rewards and limit their impact on climate change.”
