Electric vehicle fleet to help Eurotunnel cut CO2
Eurotunnel Group will bolster its existing fleet of 13 cars with seven electric models, while its facilities management partner ISS, which has 160 staff on the site, will replace 11 of its 25-strong fleet with Renault ZOEs.
The newcomers are supported by additional charging stations, now numbering seven across the 650-hectare site, and build on the Eurotunnel’s unique Carbon Trust Standard-recognised commitment to low carbon operation.
Michel Boudoussier, Eurotunnel Chief Operating Officer stated: ‘Eurotunnel is the green route across the Channel. I am proud that the whole Group is committed, right across our operating site, to reducing our carbon footprint as respect for the environment is one of Eurotunnel’s founding principal.’
Antoine Namand, ISS Country Manager, states: ‘For this operation, we will work together to reduce our emissions by around 90 tonnes of CO2 per year and increase drivers’ comfort onsite. This approach fits perfectly within the type of partnership that we are hoping to develop between the two companies.’For more of the latest industry news, click here.
