Marston's reach latest emissions milestone

Thursday, December 10, 2020

Marston's has hit its latest ecological milestone after delivering fast-chargers for electric vehicles to 100 pubs in a partnership between Marston's and Osprey.

The launch is Britain's biggest of its kind and will pave the way for the mass adoption of electrically-powered vehicles ahead of Britain's ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles in 2030.

The electric vehicle charging company claims that the rollout, which it says will be announced in 2018, will be the largest chain of fast chargers in the UK at restaurants, and will also be one of the largest in Europe for private companies.

Andy Kershaw, Marston's "Head of Property, said:" Sustainability is becoming a key part of our day to day business as it sees demand increase for electric chargers. We are very proud to have achieved this milestone with Osprey and look forward to further developing our infrastructure over the next twelve months.

The partnership involves installing 400 fast chargers in 200 locations and from the 9 December results emerged that 59% of 2,001 UK adults polled prefer fast public charging infrastructure over other speeds.

Each charging station uses 100% renewable electricity and would be compatible with any electric vehicle available on the market today.
