John Lewis has announced plans to increase the use of electric vans across both Waitrose and John Lewis. This is to help fulfil its ambition of ending the use of fossil fuels across its entire transport fleet by 2030. The John Lewis Partnership will use two new designs of vehicles for its Waitrose.com food deliveries and for smaller John Lewis deliveries, saving over 20,000 tonnes of CO2 every year, equivalent to the carbon footprint produced by 2,500 UK households.
Justin Laney, Partner & General Manager of Central Transport at the John Lewis Partnership, says: “As our online services rapidly expand, we’re working hard to meet our goal of operating a zero fossil fuel in the next ten years. Our new electric vans are an ideal solution for home deliveries; the innovative design means they’re more efficient, but also respectful to the environment and the growing number of neighbourhoods in which we deliver.”
