Mitie electric vehicle at a charge point.
Driving Charge Point Infrastructure
Mitie has supported Royal London, the UK’s largest mutual insurance, pensions and investment company, with the installation of ten electric vehicle (EV) charge points.
The installation at the investment company's office in Alderley Park marks a landmark moment for Mitie which has now installed over 850 EV charge points at customer locations across the UK and Ireland.
In addition to the initial installation, the facility services provider is ensuring the ongoing operation of the installed charge points, and assisting Royal London with monitoring their usage.
Mitie's Plan Zero Fleet Transition Service commits to helping customers transition to electric and manage their charge point infrastructure.
Pradyumna Pandit, group's managing director for Sustainability and Energy Services, explains: "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."
Darren Smith, Head of Group Procurement & Estates at Royal London, adds: "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."
