HEATHROW TAKES DELIVERY OF ITS 50TH ELECTRIC VEHICLE AS PART OF ITS "GO ELECTRIC" STRATEGY
Heathrow has reached a key milestone in its pledge to ‘Go Electric’ with the delivery of the 50th electric vehicle to the airport’s fleet.
It believes that the delivery is a key step in its promise to make all of its cars and small vans electric or plug-in hybrid by 2020 to help improve air quality around the airport.
This announcement comes as Heathrow celebrates receiving two awards for their fleet.
The airport’s charging infrastructure has also contributed towards Heathrow’s win at the Commercial Fleet Awards where the gateway was awarded the Environment and Low Carbon award at the event for the work done to improve air quality with the use of electric and plug in hybrid vehicles.
Since pledging to ‘Go Electric’, Heathrow has spent over £4 million in charging infrastructure, with a total of more than £5 million committed to be spent by the end of 2018.
It is confisent that these actions and efforts to provide new public transport options into the airport like Crossrail and a potential Western Rail access, will reduce emissions and congestion related to airport traffic, and set a bold direction towards a future of sustainable aviation.
Airport CEO, John Holland-Kaye, said: “Since our pledge to switch to electric cars and vans in 2015 we have made tremendous progress towards improving air quality in our city, but we are committed to go further yet.”
