Europe’s leading business aviation airport has taken delivery of a fleet of three 100 percent battery-electric Renault ZOEs as part of its ongoing strategy to reduce its carbon footprint.
TAG Farnborough Airport – the only dedicated business aviation airport in the UK – is using the electric vehicles to shuttle staff between buildings..
The vehicles make a contribution to the airport’s continued efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and meet the goals set out in its sustainability charter, which covers everything from waste management and energy usage to vehicle emissions.
Miles Thomas, Environment Manager at TAG Farnborough Airport, said: “We monitor our carbon footprint very closely across all our services and departments, and being able to reduce the environmental impact of the staff vehicle movements across the airport was a driving factor for us.
“We looked at all the electric vehicles on the market but only the ZOE ticked all our boxes. The car offers the low running costs and zero emissions and it’s also small, functional, simple and enjoyable to drive and has an impressive range.”
He added: “The reaction of our staff to the three ZOEs has been fantastic and very positive. People are enjoying driving them and we’ll definitely be looking to add more EVs to our fleet as a result.
