Sustainability in focus
Sustainability and the environment wired into our DNA
Thanks to GARO’s strong focus on sustainability, striving to be a leader in corporate responsibility comes naturally. We take a long-term and systematic approach to lessening the impact of our business, products and decisions on the environment, society and people throughout the value chain. And, of course, this encompasses our entire business, in every country where we operate.
World Earth Day 2023
At GARO , we know how important it is to protect the environment and provide sustainable solutions to the challenges that face our world. That is why we are proud to announce that we have recently planted over 20 trees in the west of Ireland with Hometree as a way of demonstrating our commitment to sustainability. In the UK we have recently donated to planting trees.
The time is now!
The time is now! Switch to Electric and take accountability for you this Earth Day.
Switching to electric cars has so many benefits for the environment, such as reducing noise pollution, air pollution and creating less carbon emissions. GARO Electric is all about sustainability and our impact on the environment. We work long-term and systematically to improve the impact our activities, products and decisions have on the environment, society and people throughout the value chain.
Leading player in responsible business
Our electrical products and charging stations are part of society's infrastructure, therefore the choice of materials and design are important sustainability factors. The materials for our products are carefully selected based on both durability, environmental aspect, user-friendliness and appearance. We strive to be a leading player in responsible business.
The numbers of electric vehicles and hybrids are increasing
The numbers of electric vehicles and hybrids on UK and Irish roads are increasing steadily. However, growth in charging stations is not keeping pace with the growing numbers of electric vehicles. The charging infrastructure must be expanded, not only along the roads, but also near homes and workplaces and commercial buildings.
We need smarter cities
Urbanisation is the strongest global trend at present. More than half of the world’s population already lives in cities, and within a few decades this figure will have risen to 70%. Considering the growing environmental impact that this entails, there is an urgent need for new smart ways to meet the demand for a high standard of living while maintaining sustainable social development so that our planet can cope.
Investing in more roadside fast chargers
The charging infrastructure expansion is a very welcome. The numbers of electric vehicles and hybrids on UK & Irish Roads are increasing steadily. However, growth in charging stations is not keeping pace with growth in electric vehicles.
