CU Phosco Lighting on the Road to a Low Emissions Future
CU Phosco Lighting is proud to receive ‘Go Ultra Low Company’ status. The initiative recognises businesses that are embracing electric vehicles (EVs) as part of a new scheme run by government and automotive industry campaign, Go Ultra Low.
We have been awarded ‘Go Ultra Low Company’ status in recognition of how plug-in cars and vans form an increasingly important part of our fleet. The accolade also recognises our commitment to boosting their uptake over the next five years as part of our long-term transport strategy.
In future we aim to give as many employees as possible the chance to drive or own an electric vehicle, to boost our eco-credentials further and make a real difference to the environment by reducing CO2 emissions and improving air quality in our region. Not only can EVs promote cleaner motoring, there are also multiple short- and long-term financial benefits for us and our employees to enjoy.

Public and private sector organisations that already use EVs, or offer them to employees as company cars, are eligible for Go Ultra Low Company status, providing there’s a commitment for EVs to make up 5% of their vehicle fleet by 2020, which is in line with our aim of boosting our fleet EV numbers by around 300% over the next few years.

William Marques, Chairman at CU Phosco Lighting, said: "Electric Vehicles currently make up 28% of our fleet, we aim to increase this figure to 75% by 2020. Our EVs are charged on site using energy generated from the solar power system which is installed on the roofs of two of our factories."
