BakerHicks goes green with electric vehicle chargers .

News 18 Jul 2023

The 18th of July marked a special day for BakerHicks on their journey towards net zero, with the installation of eight twin unit electric vehicle charging points at their Motherwell office.

Highlights .

  • 16 electric vehicle chargers available for use by employees, visitors and colleagues in Morgan Sindall Construction
  • Encouraging adoption of low and zero emissions transport
  • Contributing to parent company, Morgan Sindall Group’s, target of achieving net zero by 2030

The charging points will provide 16 allocated spaces for staff, visitors and colleagues from sister company, Morgan Sindall Construction, who are based in the same building in Motherwell. Providing a highly competitive tariff, the charge points will help facilitate a move towards a more sustainable mode of transportation for employees and visitors travelling to the office. 

Laura James, Head of Scotland, and one of the leads on the project, said:

We’re incredibly proud to be able to launch this EV charging point scheme. For the last two years, we’ve been working our way through landlord negotiations, extensive supplier research as well as delivering the scheme design and managing installation. It’s been a labour of love for everyone involved as more of us are adopting low and zero emissions transport to improve our sustainability efforts. Thank you to the team for making this a reality for us.

BakerHicks are also in talks to install similar chargers at their Warwick office and the landlord of their Salford Quays office has plans to introduce them in the future. The company also offers employees access to electric vehicles through the company car scheme that forms part of their employment benefits offer. 

The electric vehicle initiative forms part of BakerHicks’ plans to achieve net zero by 2030 alongside their sister companies in Morgan Sindall Group. The Group are highly active in promoting sustainability and driving low carbon initiatives in the UK, including a woodlands programme to plant over 250,000 new trees on Blenheim Estate and a partnership with the Great North Bog to fund peatland conservation and restoration. 

These activities contributed to the Group achieving a CDP A rating and being validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). 

The SBTi assessed the Group’s greenhouse gas reduction targets against their Net-Zero Standard and Near-Term Target criteria and after careful review they approved them as being in-line with a 1.5°C trajectory. The Group’s net-zero target was also commended as currently being the most ambitious designation available through the SBTi process, which means the Group continues to hold a validated, science-based sustainability strategy with targets that positions them ahead of others in the industry.
