Renault and Scottish Natural Heritage team up to influence electric vehicle use

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.”
