Civic Contractors has set a goal for its fleet of 250 vehicles to be fully electrified by 2025 and to be running on 100% renewable energy by 2031.
The purpose behind this smart transport initiative is to help reduce greenhouse emissions to zero, to build stronger and longer client relationships, and to inspire others in the industry to shift to electric vehicles.
Civic partnered with the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority (EECA) to assist with funding for NZ’s first locally built 10 tonne electric trucks for street cleaning and facility maintenance. The trucks are quiet, reliable and efficient to operate. This makes them ideal for the services Civic provides, particularly in residential, inner city areas at night time.
