Quant Finland making a sustainable choice
In the spring of 2020, Quant Finland’s management team decided to start upgrading its car fleet to a less polluting and taking stronger steps towards using electric cars. Switching to electric cars is another step towards a more sustainable maintenance.
The way of sustainable thinking is an important value for Quant and bringing it into the development of maintenance operations starts already from the company’s vision. As a service provider, we also have many opportunities to help our customers develop maintenance activities in the direction of sustainable development. Electric cars have also been positively received by users, i.e. employees.
”New cars have been received positively in every unit. The development step is also perceived as important among our employees. This is a good example of us doing really concrete things for the environment,” says Quant Finland’s development director Mika Puontila.
”In 2020, we took the first cars for the test, back then about 10% of our car fleet was electric cars. This year, the use of electric cars will be increased so that 30% of our cars will be electric cars by the end of the year. Our goal is that by the end of 2023, 100% of our cars will run on electricity,” Puontila adds.
