Electric mobility partner and leading electric vehicle maker EMotors, Inc. (EMI) has partnered with The Net Group (TNG) in its latest initiative to tackle pollution and lower carbon footprint while creating jobs and livelihood that encourages women drivers.
The company, which has been the official green electric mobility partner of APEC, has chosen The Net Group to promote the use and benefits of EMotors’ ZüM passenger e-shuttles. EMotors adds TNG to the growing list of sustainability conscious companies it has partnered with to include PepsiCo (PCPPI), 2GO, Astoria Group, among others.
Moreover, the partnership with EMotors makes TNG the first company to utilize sustainable, pure electric vehicles to serve the transport needs of its own staff, officers, and tenants starting with their two buildings, Net Park and Net Lima that is located at the heart of upscale Bonifacio Global City (BGC).
EMotors President Elizabeth H. Lee, said, “The endeavor provides for a win-win-win situation for all stakeholders where the company, the people, and the city gain from the obvious benefits of using zero-emission, zero-noise electric vehicles.”
“By working together, we co-create mutual value. We connect with visionary leaders & citizens who put importance in transforming the way we live, work, play, one that jump starts a radical change in how we move around our communities and lessen our impact on the environment,” adds Lee.
Meanwhile, Raymond Rufino, Co-President of The Net Group, expressed his support with EMotors in taking initiative on the importance of building a cleaner environment. “We want to help alleviate the stress of commuting for TNG staff and our tenants even within a short range of radius with the free point-to-point ZÜM electric shuttle, one that also supports our corporate sustainability goals.”
In line with EMotors’ social objectives, the project aimed to help address women’s welfare-where majority of the e-shuttle drivers are women; Livelihood Creation-where drivers get to earn a living that is less taxing, more enjoyable, and fulfilling; and Environmental Protection by limiting environmental degradation, pollution, and supporting clean air efforts.
EMotors, Inc. is the country’s first and only 100% Filipino-owned manufacturer and assembler of three-wheeled zero-emission electric vehicles, which is registered with the Department of Trade and Industry/Board of Investment’s Motor Vehicle Development Program under EO156. The company is also accredited with the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
