What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
PlugN Drive NZ’s primary goal is to improve the uptake of 100% electric vehicles in order to shift transportation away from a reliance on fossil fuels thereby reducing harmful emissions.
To achieve this we source late model used/ nearly new 100% electric cars with the latest available technology & greatest range possible and import them for sale in NZ. We actively engage in the promotion of electric cars and provide information to the public to support the uptake.
We also seek to improve the local environment by planting 7 trees for every vehicle sold and facilitate our customers to do the same. We have been developing community partnerships with Old Man Nikau and via Million metres riparian planting projects to make this happen.
Fiona one of our directors is working with not for profit organisations such as Project Restore NZ to develop a sustainability plan to offset their national travel emissions. They do this by purchasing AirNZ carbon credits for all air travel and tree planting projects. Project Restore NZ now has 16% of its staff driving EV’s purchased through PlugN Drive NZ. Murray - our other director is working on projects to 100% renewable energy to charge our cars in conjunction with Solar Futures ltd.
We are working on offering sustainably sourced car finance for our customers and supporting/ sponsoring other sustainable social enterprises to access electric vehicles for their fleets such as Pakaraka Permaculture in Thames.
