Entegro add Electric Vehicles to its group fleet
Since its inception, Entegro has been guided by its company mission of Building Digital Networks for Future Generations – a message in which sustainability is evident at the core. As an organisation, it has always championed practices that are environmentally friendly and as the close of year-end 2022 approaches, significant changes have been made in its efforts to become even more sustainable.
Reducing carbon footprint is essential, and as the organisation grows, so too does its fleet meaning more vehicles on the road. Electric vehicles result in an average of 54% less lifetime carbon pollution than fuel-powered vehicles, hence adding EVs to its fleet to reduce carbon footprint was an obvious choice.
Paul O’Connor, Access and Liaison Manager at Entegro commented on the initiative “My role requires quite a bit of travelling and time spent on the road. As an employee, it gives me confidence in the company to see that they are playing their part in the fight against climate change. It’s great to see these changes are being made to become more sustainable and enabling employees to contribute to this is fantastic”.
To facilitate the move to include EVs in the group fleet, charging stations have been installed in the company’s Dublin base in Baldonnel. Each employee who drives an Electric Vehicle at Entegro has also been fitted with a charging station at their home in order to make the transition as seamless as possible Rob Ingham, Group Fleet & Facilities Manager added.
“We see the major role and responsibility that companies can have in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. By providing the necessary Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure and transitioning our fleet to greener alternatives, we hope that it can encourage a wider Electric Vehicle adoption within our industry and across society.”
“Every day, we are working towards bridging the digital divide in society and communities for future generations. Being socially and environmentally responsible goes hand in hand with this and we are proud to add even more Electric Vehicles to our fleet in 2023.” Jim Doyle, Entegro CEO, said.
