Travel in vehicles represents around 14% of our carbon footprint. As we prepare for governments to cease sales of petrol and diesel vehicles we are assessing the differences between standard diesel van and battery electric vehicles.

During the year Genus operated six fully electric vehicles in its UK fleet and has plans to increase to 15 in FY22 as part of a ‘fleetwide’ replacement programme. From FY22, the Company will cease to buy any petrol or diesel-only vehicles in the UK, and we are working with suppliers to solve issues for employees, such as access to charging points at home.
