MHI committed to Bristol green initiatives, James Durie charges his Nissan Leaf at our HQ

James Durie, Director at Business West visited Mail Handling International (MHI’s) Bristol Headquarters on the Feeder Road on a sunny January Thursday to meet with our CEO Paul Brown to discuss green initiatives for South West companies as part of Bristol Green Capital 2015. James made the visit in his impressive Nissan Leaf electric vehicle (EV) bringing Bristol further into the EV loop. As one of the first BS2 companies to provide an electric vehicle charging point for visiting clients and suppliers, MHI are keen to encourage the use of electric vehicles.


Paul said “Installing the EV charging point and solar PV has proven to be a fantastic opportunity to MHI’s carbon footprint. We are celebrating Bristol Green Capital by reducing our emissions in innovative ways. MHI are thrilled to be able to provide a power hub for electric vehicles and we are proud to be a part of a greener Bristol.”


Installed in 2014 for use by visitors to MHI and sister company Bascom-bms, our charge point is one of the freshest ways we are doing our bit to improve air quality in central Bristol. Passionate about reducing the carbon footprint, we installed solar panels last year to power it and our Digital Print department, which are forecast to reduce our CO2 emissions by at least 8,000KG this year.


James said: “As a strategic partner of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital, we're delighted to see businesses like MHI embracing environmental initiatives. Our Go Green programme, in partnership with Low Carbon South West, provides a unique opportunity for businesses in our city-region to get involved and lead the way in sustainable practice, helping to create a low carbon city with a high quality of life in 2015 and beyond. It's not just about being green, it makes good business sense."


2014 certainly saw a change in the way the UK powers their vehicles, with more electric vehicles commercially available. 2015 is set to be a fantastic year to progress with even more sustainable transport opportunities and to build up the Bristol economy.
