Leading the charge on electrifying our fleet by 2025

Our brand new electric vans

At British Gas we know how important it is to do all we can to fight climate change and work towards a more sustainable future for everyone. That’s why we’re really excited to be rolling out our new fleet of all-electric vans.

Over the next few months, you’ll see 1,000 shiny new Vauxhall Vivaro-e vans hitting the roads as we continue on our mission to drive down our carbon footprint.

There really is big change happening here at British Gas. We run one of the largest fleets in the UK, with over 12,000 vehicles on the road. And we’re committed to making sure these are all electric by 2025, five years ahead of the current government guidelines. So we’ll be placing more orders with our friends at Vauxhall as soon as they’re off the assembly line.

Leading the charge in your community

The past 12 months have been tough for everyone. But they’ve shown that our engineers can play a vital part in the local community they serve. From working with the Trussell Trust to deliver over 4 million meals to people in need, to making sure the first electric vans go to the areas with the highest emission zones. These are just some of the things we’re doing to make things greener, cleaner and safer for everyone.

How you can get involved

To help our customers lower their carbon footprint, all our electricity tariffs are now 100% zero carbon. And if you want to get even get closer to carbon-neutral, here are a couple of ideas that are really worth considering.

Giving electric vehicles the green light
Electric cars have come a long way in recent years. And while they’re relatively expensive, they could end up saving you money in the long run. If you’re thinking about swapping to an electric car, or perhaps you already have, then check out our handy guide on charging your EV.

Charging your electric vehicle could not be easier

Power your home, protect our planet
For a smaller change that could still make a big difference, why not take a look at our Green Future energy tariff? We’ll match 100% of the electricity you use with renewable sources, like wind and solar. And all of the CO2 footprint from your gas will be balanced by carbon-cutting projects and biogas made from food and farm waste. It’s a simple way to get your home one-step closer to being carbon neutral.
