Sustainable mobility is starting to occupy an important place in the strategy and concerns of both businesses and public institutions. Proof of this can be seen in recent events to have taken place in Madrid. The first, VEM 2015 (Electric Vehicle Madrid 2015), organised by the Madrid City Hall, AEDIVE and movilidadelectrica.com, aimed to promote “zero-emission” mobility with Madrid’s residents. And the second, the II Forum on the Electric Vehicle and Associated Industry, organised by General Directorate for Industry, Energy and Mines together with the Energy Foundation. SEUR was present at both events as part of its commitment to sustainable mobility and the reduction in CO2 emissions arising from its daily business.
The electric vehicle is one of the alternatives to the conventional fuel-driven vehicle being supported by SEUR, together with the use of other alternative fuels, such as natural gas or LPG, supported by other initiatives such as SEUR Predict that helps reduce the carbon footprint and strengthens the company’s commitment to sustainable mobility.
By being silent and not producing pollutant emissions at the point of use, EVs are seen as an excellent alternative for last mile distribution in city centres. In fact SEUR is currently increasing to 13 the number of cities in which it uses EVs that range from bicycles, cargo trikes, mopeds and vans such as the Renault Kangoo. Madrid, Vitoria, San Sebastián, Pamplona, Seville, Alicante, Malaga, Barcelona, Valencia, Huesca, Segovia, Tarragona and Cartagena already benefit from this type of sustainable distribution in their urban centres.
