Quooker has announced that in its latest sustainability initiative it has partnered with the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) to introduce VN5 electric vans for all its UK engineers. This latest vehicle update follows the migration of Quooker’s account managers to environmentally friendly Tesla cars, and means each van will emit 36.6 tonnes less CO2 emissions than a diesel engine over five years, saving an equivalent of 397 trees.
With fully recyclable monocoques made from recycled aluminium, as well as floors and internal coverings made from recycled plastic, the new VN5 fleet features 89% of parts purchased through UK-based companies, saving on transport and carbon emissions. During production, every aluminium scrap is sold, with profits donated to charity.
Stephen Johnson, Quooker UK MD, said: "At Quooker, sustainability is at the heart of all our thinking. Not only do we produce environmentally friendly products, but most significantly, we are looking to run a sustainable business. We are absolutely delighted to have teamed up with the London Electric Vehicle Company to provide our engineers with vehicles packed with an amazing set of sustainability credentials."
