By / 5 months ago / UK News / No Comments

Anglian Water has deployed 10 electric vans on its fleet to help push ahead with its plans to be carbon neutral by 2050.

The fleet of Nissan e-NV200s, which will also help slash the water company’s £4.5m annual diesel spend, will be used by employees carrying out more localised visits and are being supported by electric charging stations installed across a number of sites.

Stewart Lightbody, head of fleet services at Anglian Water, said: “Reducing both fleet emissions and our carbon footprint are key for us. We were one of the first companies to sign up to the Clean Van Commitment which has been created by Global Action Plan, to speed up the switch to zero emissions vans.:

The vans will also enable the company to explore how it can roll out more electric vehicles on its fleet in the future.

Lightbody added: “Our first 10 vans are another key step forward towards our ambition to be completely carbon neutral by 2050 and we are excited to see how quickly we might be able to expand their use in our fleet.”
