JT is planning to replace its vehicle fleet with zero emission alternatives within the next few years.
The telecoms company has begun its transition by purchasing 10 Nissan electric vehicles, replacing the oldest of JT’s fleet of Suzuki vans, supporting the island's goal of achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2030.
The vehicles have all been bought at auctions, having previously been used by councils in Scotland - something the firm says is in-keeping with its policy to reuse, reduce and recycle wherever possible.
“JT has one of the largest commercial fleets in Jersey with almost 100 cars used by engineers and our aim is to not only replace all petrol and diesel vehicles but to reduce the number of vehicles on our roads, supporting that with charging points in key locations," Tom Noel, Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability, said.
"As a business that has placed sustainability at the heart of everything we do, we’ve made initiatives like this a key priority of our Sustainability Strategy over the next decade.
"Moments of global crisis often lead to historical change and the recovery from the pandemic presents a huge opportunity for Governments, businesses and individuals to put action on climate at the heart of their efforts."
