Energy giant Shell and the multinational private security firm G4S, which are both based in the UK, have entered into a new global partnership aimed at decarbonising G4S’s fleet to improve sustainability.
G4S operates a fleet of around 2,500 vehicles in the UK and Ireland, with these including cash vans, patrol cars and ambulances. It aims to make its car fleet emission free by the end of this decade, followed by its entire fleet by 2040. By 2050, the company aims to be an overall net-zero emitter of greenhouse gasses.
In a news release on its website, G4S said:
“A company the size and scale of G4S has a responsibility to lead the way in this area for the entire industry and Shell Fleet Solutions are a vital partner to help take us into the future and keep our fleet on the go.”
According to the company, its vehicles account for around 80% of its scope 1 and 2 emissions of greenhouse gases. Scope 1 and 2 refer to fuel burned directly by the company’s assets and emissions resulting indirectly from energy supplied to the company. G4S said it has therefore prioritised fleet decarbonisation as part of its overall goal of becoming a net-zero business. It has produced a video together with Shell about how they have progressed so far on introducing vehicle-charging solutions for the fleet.
