Mitie has been appointed as a supplier on the Carbon and Energy Fund Infrastructure Upgrade Services Framework. The appointment provides Mitie with significant opportunities to support NHS hospitals and the wider public sector to achieve net zero targets by 2040, through developing major energy projects focused on decarbonisation.
The Framework, which will be managed by COCH (Countess of Chester Hospital) through its appointed service provider CEF, is designed to provide the NHS and the wider public sector with a streamlined and cost-efficient procurement route for upgrading energy systems and infrastructure through guaranteed fixed-term financial savings.
This appointment enables Mitie to tender for call-off contracts released by CEF on behalf of hospitals and wider public sector organisations to design, fund, deliver, operate, and maintain complex energy infrastructure upgrades where long-term energy saving performance is prioritised.
Only appointed suppliers are able to bid for work under this Framework for contracts with a combined total of up to £1bn in value. This cements Mitie’s position as a key supplier to the public sector, enabling it to offer its significant expertise and experience in decarbonising public sector estates.
This Framework appointment builds on an already long-standing relationship between Mitie and CEF. Mitie launched ‘Plan Zero’ in 2020 with a commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2025, and is on a mission to help more of its customers make their own sustainability and net zero targets a reality.
Pradyumna Pandit, Managing Director, Energy and Sustainability, Mitie, said:
“As part of our bid to help decarbonise Britain, we are committed to supporting our customers to reduce their carbon footprints and achieve their wider sustainability goals. This appointment enables us to offer our energy management and sustainability expertise to help NHS hospitals and wider public sector bodies become more energy efficient and reach their net zero potential.”
