Renault and Scottish Natural Heritage team up to influence electric vehicle use
Renault UK is supplying Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH)
with its first electric cars as the organisation begins its move towards a
fully electric car pool fleet as a way to reduce its emissions.
SNH has purchased five 100% electric Renault Zoes, and
Renault UK regional electric vehicle expert Matt Kiziuk is going the extra (zero
emission) mile by presenting electric vehicle best practice at three sites that
the vehicles will be used from.
SNH, which has a board appointed directly by the Scottish
Government, promotes, cares for and improves Scotland’s natural heritage. It
advises the government on Scottish nature, habitats, and wildlife, working to
connect people with nature and encourage them to enjoy nature responsibly.
Looking to the future, it promotes the sustainable use of
natural assets and eco-friendly solutions to the current climate challenges to
safeguard the environment for future generations.
The Zoes will be used as part of its car pool fleets in
Edinburgh, Inverness, Perth, and Golspie.
Sigmund Craig-Gould, SNH fleet manager, said: “Climate
change is a global concern, and we are trying to do our part to tackle its
effects by reducing our carbon emissions. These zero emission electric vehicles
will help us achieve our goals, and meet the Scottish Government’s target of
phasing out petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2032.”
