The companies aim to transition all of their services into fully electric programmes by 2030. Mark Potter, Head of Building Services at Ocado Group said:
“Ocado is committed to being the UK’s most sustainable grocer. This starts at our head office where we encourage employees to swap their car for a sustainable alternative. The introduction of the electric bus service with Zeelo allows our employees to benefit from a net zero commuting option
The service, launched on 29th November, transports employees to and from Ocado Group and Ocado Retail’s head office locations in Hatfield, UK, from nearby towns including St Albans and Welwyn Garden City.
By providing an all-electric bus programme, Zeelo and Ocado hope to save 16 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. Meanwhile they are offering another valuable transportation link to the office for staff who are living in areas that may be underserved by public transport
