B&A Group to reduce emissions with Electric Cars
The B&A Group has strengthened its electrical vehicle (EV) infrastructure, as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to reduce carbon emissions.
Electrical vehicles (EVs) contain multiple benefits not only to safeguard the environment but also protect public health.
These zero emission systems have led to a reduction in harmful exhaust pollutants, resulting in better air quality and a decrease in health problems. EV’s are also quieter compared to conventional petrol/diesel cars, which means less noise pollution is generated overall.
Alongside these advantages, EVs contain a range of safety features, both for motorists and pedestrians. Most models tend to have a low centre of gravity; making them less likely to roll over as a result of an accident, while posing a much lower risk for major fires or explosions, due to their body construction and durability.
The B&A Group has started rolling out electric courtesy cars to employees and has installed four electrical charging points at its Hallen headquarters. In addition to this, a hybrid charging station has been introduced allowing its EVs to run at full capacity and with minimal disruptions.
Utilising battery electric vehicles (BEV) have also helped cut running costs as the electrical models require less servicing as generic exhaust parts such as fuel injection systems, radiators and starter motors are not needed for operation. According to B&A Group, it has proven a cost effective solution for the Bristol-based aggregate recycling and transport firm.
The uptake in electrical vehicles will not only deliver a smoother and efficient running for business, but also reduce its carbon footprint and protect the environment for the foreseeable future.
We will continue clamping down on emissions where possible by addressing the advantages of electrical vehicles as well as the importance of recycling to customers, staff and suppliers.
