Willmott Dixon to provide EV charging across all sites
UK Construction giant Willmott Dixon has announced it will install electric vehicle chargepoints (EVCPs) across all its sites and offices.
The contractor is now working with specialist Rolec to install charging points at more than 100 locations this year for the 300 staff who have switched, or are switching, to electric cars under the company’s car scheme.
Julia Barrett, Chief Sustainability Officer, said in Construction Enquirer: “Our 2030 ‘Now or Never’ strategy, launched last autumn, set some of the toughest science-based targets in the industry, including a pledge to have no direct emissions from our day-to-day operations by eliminating fossil fuel use in our offices and on our sites by 2030.
“In order to achieve this, it is critical that we move to a 100% electric vehicle fleet, which will only be viable if we are able to provide our people with the relevant equipment to make this step change possible.
