Have you considered an electric vehicle for your business?
Many Kiwi businesses are turning to electric vehicles and Gen Less’ new initiative has revealed it’s not just big business making the shift.
New Zealand businesses across a range of sectors have leapt at the chance to have their electric vehicle efforts profiled via the Gen Less EV Shout Outs initiative, which champions the use of electric vehicles in business.
Businesses already own 23 percent of the nearly 20,000 registered electric vehicles in New Zealand, and buy most of the new EVs, so Gen Less launched EV Shout Outs to give organisations across the country an opportunity to ‘shout out’ about their EVs use online and on billboards across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
More than 30 businesses have already signed up for an EV Shout Out in advance of the campaign going live, other organisations that have moved to EVs are encouraged to shout out from today.
Companies cite a range of reasons that inspired their transition to electric, from lowering their carbon footprint, to cuttings costs, and creating a healthier living environment for Kiwis across the country.
EECA Chief Executive Andrew Caseley commented, “Consumers want to see businesses taking positive action to tackle climate change. The shout out celebrates organisations, big and small, taking leadership in this area, they show that electric transport is becoming the new normal for modern business.”
Gen Less unites individuals, organisations, businesses and the country’s government, to live and work in more climate-friendly ways.
Live now and running until March 29th 2020, the EV Shout Outs will champion the EV efforts of New Zealand businesses on high profile billboards and online.
