Our core values – growth, innovation and sustainability – form the foundation of our culture, corporate and sustainability strategy. Sustainability has become a buzzword for modern businesses, but all too often environmentally friendly credentials turn out to be little more than hot air. Logistic companies can value speed over sustainability, but at EV Cargo we believe there doesn’t have to be that trade.
We do all we can to look after our customers and our planet. For EV Cargo, sustainability is about doing rather than saying – which is why we believe in a proactive approach and a commitment which is hard-wired into every aspect of our operations.
We have a robust sustainability strategy built around three key pillars: people, planet and profit. Each has its own distinct part to play in directing our strategy for a low carbon, sustainable and responsible future.
Our commitment is to both cultivate a sustainable company and a sustainable planet. But there is, of course, much that remains to be done and we will remain to be guided by our values and sustainability strategy.
We value sustainability over speed and do not believe that profit has to come at the expense of the planet.View our strategy

EV Cargo uses the latest technology to help to reduce emissions including: the latest low emission Euro VI vehicles; double-deck trailers with aerodynamic profile; extended length trailers with 15% extra capacity; investment in latest generation route planning software to reduce miles; SAFED driver training programme which boosts fuel efficient driving skills; and fleet wide telematics to report and promote fuel efficiency.
EV Cargo signed to be a Pledge Partner at COP26 in Glasgow last November in CALSTART’s Global Commercial Vehicle Drive to Zero program to adopt 30% of zero emissions vehicles by 2030 and 100% by 2040. Through the Drive to Zero programme, we aim to accelerate near- and zero-emission commercial vehicle (ZECV) growth worldwide, with the vision that zero-emission technology will be commercially viable and cost competitive by 2025 and dominate by 2040 in specific vehicle segments. The landmark new global agreement on zero emission trucks and buses also sets a new standard for transforming commercial transport, putting it on pace to match the Paris Agreement carbon net zero goals.
Operating across many countries means that we must be aware of varied sustainability initiatives and regulations to ensure that we meet and exceed compliance standards. We take our corporate social responsibilities seriously and believe in cultivating transparent business practices that continually aim to work with international markets and the environment.
