In a statement to RedFM News, CEO of the Port of Cork Company, Eoin McGettigan stated, “Sustainability is something that we as a company are very passionate about. As an EV driver myself for many years, I am proud to be encouraging and leading a companywide move towards electric vehicles. This transition will be introduced in stages and as work vehicles come to be renewed, EVs will now be explored as a first option. Offering energy efficient and zero emission alternatives is a pivotal part of driving The Port of Cork Company toward a more sustainable future and will help us to minimise our environmental impact within our every day Port activities. We are delighted to support our staff who decide to make the switch to EVs, by providing charging infrastructure in multiple port locations”.
