Elior UK makes the move to a 100% electric fleet

Elior UK has committed to transition its vehicles to 100% electric in a move that will reduce their vehicle CO2 emissions by 80-100%.

The exchange programme was developed earlier this year and further demonstrates Elior’s Economic Social Governance (ESG) commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Elior’s pledge will see the replacement of its petrol and diesel vans and company cars with eco-efficient vehicles that are EV (full electric), PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric) or non-plug-in hybrid electric. Any vehicle manufacturers that do not offer alternative fuelled vehicles will be removed from Elior’s car policy which will be reviewed annually to account for any changes.

Charlotte Wright, CSR manager at Elior UK comments: “As a responsible company, we wholly recognise the importance of preserving natural resources and the positive impact this will have on society and in our continued commitment to our ESG programme, it’s essential that our people are part of the journey. The UK government has announced it will ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030. We are ahead of this, going green with our vehicles is a big step in the changes we are working towards in becoming a more environmentally-sound business.”

To support the changeover, Elior will invest in installing electric charging points at its offices. App based technology will also be made available to employees to conveniently identify the nearest available pod points whilst on the move.
