EMotors, Inc., local manufacturer and assembler of electric 3-wheel vehicles has tied up with The Net Group (TNG), the country’s largest green office building developer, to promote the use and benefits of EMotors’ ZüM passenger e-shuttles. TNG joins the growing list of sustainability conscious companies that has partnered with Emotors, which include PepsiCo (PCPPI), 2GO, and Astoria Group, among others.
TNG's parnership with EMotors makes it the first company in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) 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. The Ayala-led BGC is populated by global companies the likes of Google with its young, tech savvy, globally connected and sustainably conscious citizens and employees.
“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,” said EMotors President, Elizabeth H. Lee.
“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,” said Raymond Rufino, Co-President, The Net Group.
The project aims to help tackle three major social issues: 1) Women’s Welfare – as majority of the e-shuttle drivers are women; 2) Livelihood Creation - as drivers get to earn a living that is less taxing, more enjoyable, and fulfilling; and 3) Environmental Protection by limiting environmental degradation, pollution, and supporting clean air efforts.
“By working together, we co-create mutual value... one that jumpstarts a radical change in how we move around our communities and lessen our impact on the environment,” says Elizabeth Lee.
