In the UK APCOA, has committed to switching its 300+ mopeds, cars, vans and buses to electric by 2030. APCOA PARKING will also install charging infrastructure over the same timeframe, to encourage EV uptake by its customers and 5,000 employees.
APCOA together with its clients are focused on upgrading all its London based car parks to include EV charging. The first site to go live is Bryanston Street Car Park near Oxford Circus.
Kim Challis, Regional MD, (UK & Ireland) said:
“We believe it is our responsibility to develop our company and the services we provide to our clients in a responsible and sustainable way. The UK will lead the way and share experiences with other APCOA countries, with the aim of mainstreaming electro-mobility across the APCOA PARKING Group’s entire international operations by 2030.
"We have already re-engineered our travel policy to incentivise our staff to migrate to electric vehicles and, in addition, we are working with our clients to install electric charging points across the country. To date we have installed c.50 charging points at our locations across the South of England, with a further 40 planned by end of 2019. Furthermore, we are implementing emissions-based pricing structures, aimed at rewarding customers using electric/hybrid vehicles.”
