At Jones, we recognise the growing awareness around the demand for responsible business behaviour with issues relating to sustainability, ethics and respect for all of our stakeholders. We are extremely passionate about culture, diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace and recognise the impacts that they have on both their environment and the society in which they operate.
Jones Engineering has taken delivery of it’s first Electric Vehicle. By choosing the 2019 Citroen Berlingo we are helping to reduce harmful air pollution from exhaust emissions. Electric Vehicles produce zero exhaust emissions, so they have no adverse effect on the environment, which is in line with our company’s commitment to helping lower greenhouse gas emissions. Jones Engineering uses rechargeable, battery operated plant and power tools wherever possible so electric vehicles were also a natural progression. The Berlingo has a load volume of 3.7m³ which is the same as the equivalent petrol or diesel models and can take a payload of 636kg. The fuel consumption costs are reduced by 80% and service costs are between 30% – 40% less. Electric vehicles are ideal for site based work transporters as the need to travel to service stations for refuelling is eliminated, saving time and expense. Charging can take place from any 3 pin socket and the running costs are a fraction of their fossil fuel equivalents.
“This is the modern world, so try to keep up with the Joneses.”
