Striving for Sustainability Quooker launches its new electric fleet for engineers

Leading the way in the KBB industry, Quooker strives for sustainability in all fields, from product development
to business practices. The latest initiative in its green journey, Quooker has partnered with the London Electric
Vehicle Company (LEVC) to introduce VN5 electric vans for all its UK engineers. Following the migration of
Quooker’s account managers to environmentally-friendly Tesla cars, the latest vehicle update means each van
will emit 36.6 tonnes less CO2 emissions than a diesel engine over five years, saving an equivalent of 397
trees.
With fully recyclable monocoques made from recycled aluminium, as well as floors and internal coverings
made from recycled plastic, the new VN5 fleet features 89% of parts purchased through UK-based
companies, saving on transport and carbon emissions. During production, every aluminium scrap is sold, with
profits donated to charity.

“At Quooker, sustainability is at the heart of all our thinking. Not only do we produce environmentally friendly products, but most significantly, we are looking to run a sustainable business. We are
absolutely delighted to have teamed up with the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) to
provide our engineers with vehicles packed with an amazing set of sustainability credentials.”
