Mitie has been appointed as a preferred supplier on the Net Zero Carbon Delivery framework created by ETL – a subsidiary of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
ETL created the framework to help public sector bodies including hospitals, schools and research centres to implement zero-carbon technologies in the management and development of their estates. From monitoring energy usage to installing and maintaining electric vehicle charge points and ground source heat pumps, the framework has been devised to help organisations access zero-carbon solutions.
Although the framework is aimed at public sector organisations, private sector bodies can also use the agreement to find suppliers.
Mitie said the appointment accords with its own Plan Zero commitment to help organisations achieve their own net-zero targets.
As part of this strategy, Mitie was recently appointed as a supplier in a number of Crown Commercial Service agreements, including the Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Solutions (VCIS) and Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) agreements.
The group also launched its Zero Carbon for Zero Cost service to help businesses implement solutions to improve building energy efficiency, reduce carbon and cut costs. Through its Plan Zero Fleet Transition Service, Mitie is also helping clients to switch their fleets to electric and manage EV charge point infrastructure.
Simon Venn, Mitie’s chief government and strategy officer, said: “Climate change is a fight we cannot win alone so, as part of Plan Zero, we’ve committed to helping customers achieve their own net-zero targets. Joining this framework is another opportunity for us to continue sharing our energy management and sustainability expertise to keep helping public and private sector organisations reach net-zero.”
