Infrastructure firm Costain has joined the Climate Group’s EV100 to assist in its transition to a decarbonised, 100% electric or clean fleet.
The move was made to support its climate change action plan, which will see the company reduce its carbon footprint to net-zero by 2035 at the latest through either electrifying its fleet or using alternate fuel sources such as hydrogen.
The Climate Group EV100 is a global initiative bringing together forward-looking companies committed to accelerating the transition to low emission vehicles such as electric (EVs) and hydrogen vehicles. It helps members to reduce low emission vehicle investment costs through best practice sharing. The campaign also drives engagement and dialogue between governments and other stakeholders to collaboratively address the remaining barriers to EV uptake and infrastructure roll-out.
The move will include installing charging for staff at all permanent office sites and infrastructure project sites and builds on existing initiatives to use low emissions vehicles throughout the business.
Recently, Costain introduced the first hydrogen vehicle airside at Gatwick Airport, which cleans air and emits water as it is used to provide client-side consultancy services for upgrades to critical infrastructure.
