Becoming Sustainably Focused
Since the pandemic, the sales teams at HOBART have experienced considerably reduced travel, due to virtual meetings. For the necessary meetings, HOBART chose to introduce hybrid and electric company cars to their field-based workforce, as a step forward in becoming sustainably focused.
Switching to electric vehicles will considerably reduce HOBART’s emissions and therefore their carbon footprint. The company predict to save over 200 tonnes of CO2 by the end of 2022, with further vehicle emission savings predicted as more company vehicles move over to electric.
