The Future is EV and for a good reason!
Company Cars are VIP’s biggest producer of carbon, far exceeding almost all other aspects of the company, in the past 5 years VIP Polymers have been moving away from the standard Diesel and Petrol company cars and replacing these with Plugin Hybrids to help reduce our Carbon Footprint.
Recently the company took a commercial decision to phase out all Diesel, Petrol and Hybrid company vehicles and replace them with 100% EV carbon-neutral models.
The first of the changes happened at the end of November when we replaced a VW Passat Plug-In Hybrid with the lasted generation of the BMW iX3 100% EV producing 0g/KM emissions.
Over the next 12 months, further cars will be replaced with fully electric models when their contracts end. Future-proofing this move we have added 4 EV charging points and marked these out for the use of Electric vehicles only.
The reason for this commercial decision is to help half the Carbon footprint of the company cars over the next 5 years this is in line with a number of other changes which have already been implemented and changes that are in development.
