NatWest will install 600 electric vehicle (EV) charging points at its UK offices by 2023.
The banking group has appointed EQUANS, the new brand for ENGIE’s services led activities, to supply, commission and deliver the chargers.
The 7.4kW units will support the company’s transition to a fleet 300 of EV’s. Access will be provided via the GeniePoint platform, which powers the GeniePoint network.
Michael Lynch, climate solutions lead at NatWest, said: “At NatWest we are helping our staff decarbonise transport and achieve Net Zero commuting. Working in partnership with EQUANS to provide EV Chargepoints at key strategic office locations supports our staff in making that transition to Electric Vehicles and help reduce our carbon footprint.”
Belfast Donegall Square East will be the first NatWest location to receive the EV chargers in the coming weeks.
Jerry Moloney, managing director for EQUANS’ Futures business in the UK & Ireland, added: “This partnership demonstrates a clear and strong commitment from NatWest on where they stand on the net zero transition. The only way we will convince a greater proportion of the population to consider electric vehicles is by giving them greater options and better access to chargers. This investment from NatWest does exactly that.”
