Communications Manager, David Jones commented: “Alphabet is really pleased to receive this recognition of our work with customers in making fleets and business travel more sustainable and efficient. The decision towards a ‘greener’ fleet is now both the responsible choice in terms of CSR and employee engagement, as well as one which makes sound strategic, financial and operational sense.
Alphabet is absolutely committed to working with public and private sector customers to deliver sustainable, real world business travel solutions. Increasingly, ‘green’ business travel is as much about increasing the utilisation and productivity of vehicles as driving down CO2emissions. In the past 12 months we have we have led the move towards providing ‘mobility services’ – thinking beyond simply the traditional company car.
Our portfolio of EVs has now topped 6,500 and we’re proud of the fact that Alphabet has delivered almost 10 per cent of the total Plug-in grant-eligible cars and vans registered in the UK this year so far.
