MPCALA Holdings Inc. said Monday it will transition its entire fleet of traffic and security vehicles along Cavite-Laguna Expressway into environment-friendly electric vehicles.
The company is already using an electric bus as a shuttle for employees. MHI said it would put up e-vehicle charging stations along CALAX for its fleet and other e-vehicles plying the expressway.
“As each vehicle in our fleet hits its end of life, we replace them with EVs. In a broad sense EVs create a lower carbon footprint over the course of their lifetime than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles. Our move to transition to EV is aligned with our strategy to help decarbonize the transport sector,” said Christopher Lizo, Metro Pacific Tollways chief finance officer and senior executive sponsor for sustainability.
“This is in support of our country’s goal of reducing its fossil-fuel consumption as part of its thrust for sustainable development,” he said.
