Electric vehicle-charging provider Pod Point has won a three-year supplier agreement with Kier.
The agreement will see Pod Point provide charge-point installations at Kier offices across the UK, including six twin 7kW charge points at its UK headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire. To support the growing number of its employees opting to drive plug-in vehicles, the partnership will also assist with the provision of domestic charge points.
Kier has also carried out several successful trials of electric vans for its commercial fleet.
Anthony Parish, Kier's group director of fleet, said: "More and more of our workforce are interested in and opting to drive electric cars and we are committed to offering travel solutions that enable our diverse business and workforce to conduct its work in an environmentally responsible manner and it supports our overall company vision and strategy to reduce our use of energy 30 per cent by 2030."
