In an announcement that Melita is converting 40 per cent of the company’s cars to electric vehicles, CFO Randolph Said this forms part of the company’s vision is to have cleaner air and to reduce pollution on the roads.

Melita has “more than doubled” the number of electric vehicles on its fleet over the last year, as it continues its accelerated path to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Malta’s transport sector represents a staggering 23 per cent of all of the country’s energy-related emissions, and, by electrifying 40 per cent of its fleet, the company will succeed in “eliminating over 40 tonnes of harmful emissions from Malta’s roads by the end of the year,” Melita said in a statement.

In addition, Melita plans to have 90 per cent of its fleet converted to electric by 2025.

Completing this initiative, Melita employed a parking app. “By managing parking spaces more effectively, it continued to reduce the carbon footprint associated with inefficient parking,” the company explained.

The green initiative taken by Melita, to replace conventional petrol cars and diesel-powered vans with electric vehicles, has placed the telecoms service provider among the three top finalists for next month’s Malta Business Awards.

Mr Said added that Melita’s recognition as finalist in the Green Transport Initiative category , “is a welcome recognition of the company’s strong environmental credentials.”

This category recognises the efforts of businesses that have implemented measures to encourage the use of smart and sustainable transport initiatives and increase operational efficiency.
