John Sisk & Son has expanded its EV (Electric Vehicle) fleet and is continuing to invest in sustainable solutions, becoming one of the first companies in Ireland to receive a consignment of ten new Volkswagen ID.3 electric cars.
This builds upon Sisk’s wider investment in EVs announced in 2019 and bolsters its commitment to invest €2.8m extending its fleet of EVs to 100 over four years as part of a company-wide drive to reduce carbon outputs. Sisk is now offering more EVs as a choice to its employees than traditional internal combustion engines.
The average CO2 emissions of the cars available on Sisk’s fleet list is now 53% lower compared to its fleet list 18 months ago. As the market offering and capability of technology improves, Sisk will be progressing to expand its fleet offering.
Tom Grant, Director of Assets and Internal Services, John Sisk & Son said: “This is a great milestone for Sisk and demonstrates our commitment to EVs and reducing our carbon footprint. Sisk has made a significant investment in this area as we believe in a sustainable approach to how we deliver our projects. We anticipate a 50 percent uptake in EVs in FY20 fleet renewals and we are aiming to reach 75 percent of our vehicle choice being EV in FY21.”
As a main contractor, Sisk partners with its supply chain to help decrease the life cycle energy consumption of a construction project. Sisk is engaging with customers, designers and our wider supply chain to implement a range of innovative concepts and techniques to help reduce energy consumption over the life cycle of all its projects.
