Going green – our electrifying trip to the IRRV

As part of our commitment to a carbon-neutral future, we upgraded our vehicles to a fully electric fleet.

Our electric vans are usually used to make local deliveries, but last week, our local government specialists Mark Skirton and Josh Armstrong were the first of our team to take our e-van for a longer spin to a live event – the @IRRV in Telford.

They discovered that this commitment isn’t without its drawbacks – as provisions for electric vehicles are early in their rollout, finding a charger wasn’t always as simple as it looked! Nevertheless, the van arrived safely in Telford, and the event was a success.

With four electric cars and two electric vans, our electric fleet is just part of our journey to become carbon-neutral by 2025. This commitment affects every area of our business, from large decisions about the suppliers we use and the technology we invest in, right down to the merchandise we give away at live events.
