BrightView Continues Electric Conversion of Fleet Vehicles with Deployment of 100 Chevrolet Bolt EUVs
Newest Addition of Electric Cars Furthers the BrightView’s Sustainability Pledge to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
As part of its ongoing effort to convert its fleet of vehicles to electric, BrightView, the nation’s leading commercial landscaping company, today announced the purchase of 100 electric-powered Chevrolet Bolt EUVs that will be put into service across the country, beginning this month. With the deployment of these new cars, BrightView’s management fleet is now comprised of nearly 400 electric and hybrid vehicles.
Over the next four years, the company’s aim is to convert its fleet of 3,000 field managers’ vehicles to electric and hybrid. Today’s announcement – and similar enterprise efforts – is a part of BrightView’s overall environmental sustainability strategy of reducing its carbon footprint and becoming carbon neutral by 2035.
“As a company dedicated to developing, designing, and maintaining the best landscapes on Earth, we are continually seeking sustainable solutions that minimize our impact on the environment,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView President and Chief Executive Officer. “The addition of electric and hybrid vehicles is yet another example of our commitment to investing in the future of our planet and achieving our environmental goals.”
