EVCo, Singapore’s pioneer electric-Mobility-as-a-Service (eMaaS) provider, today launched its inaugural Green Horizon Day – “Shaping a Sustainable Future”. The launch signified EVCo’s leadership and positive impact on the business community and on the environment. Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State for Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment, and Ministry of Transport was the Guest of Honour. Joining her were over 200 C-suite, senior executives from businesses – large and small enterprises, government agencies, and industry associations.
Commitment to Sustainability Success
“Since its inception in April 2022, EVCo has helped customers from various industries, such as logistics, field services, integrated facilities management and security services, to make progress in reducing their carbon footprint. Through the use of commercial electric vehicles enabled by digitalisation and data, they have contributed to a collective CO2 avoidance of over 300 tonnes, which is equivalent to the amount of CO2 absorbed by planting 13,800 trees.” said Ms Judy Lee, Chairperson, EVCo during her opening address at Green Horizon Day.
The event recognised eight forward-looking industry trailblazers like Aetos, Alliance 21 Group, Anticimex, CBM Group, Certis, Nera, Otis Elevator, and Primech, each earning commendation as a Decarbonisation Early Adopter at Green Horizon Day.
Through EVCo’s tech-led end-to-end Electric-Mobility-as-a Service (eMaaS) solutions, these customers have made significant strides in their decarbonisation and sustainability journeys. For example, Nera Telecommunications, a leading information and communications technology solutions provider headquartered in Singapore, managed to reduce its fleet size by 25%, achieved an impressive 35% savings in annual operation costs, and a significant 60% cut in carbon emissions. Anticimex, the
global leader in the pest control industry attained a 30% reduction in the average Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) per vehicle. This led to a substantial, over 40% decrease in carbon emissions from 2020 to 2023. Separately, logistics firm Alliance 21 Group was able to reduce over 920 kgs of CO2 emissions per month.(More details of the impact made can be found in Annex A).
Collaboration with Forward-Looking Customers for a Sustainable Future
“Over the past year, we are pleased that our collaboration with our customers have helped them to transition to cleaner-energy transportation, enabling them to work towards their sustainability goals through mobility decarbonisation.
