In line with the organization’s long-term sustainability goals and the core objective of reducing carbon emissions, deploying EVs is the first and significant start in sustainable logistics.

Each EV can carry a weight of up to 1,000 kg and can easily cover a distance of 100 kilometers on a single charge.

Alexander Reisch, Managing Director, IPM India, said, “For IPM India, sustainability is more than just a means to minimize negative externalities and mitigate risks while maximizing operational efficiency and resource optimization. As an organization, we see sustainability as a fundamental opportunity for innovation, growth, and purpose-led, impact-driven, long-term value creation. Accordingly, we work hard to integrate sustainability into every aspect of our business and activities. Electric vehicles are revolutionizing the world of road transport. The adoption of EVs aligns with our core values. With each new carbon-neutral initiative, we move a step closer to realizing our goal—to transition toward a carbon-neutral model.”

Sharad Aggarwal, CEO, Godfrey Phillips India, said, “We take immense pride in facilitating the introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) into IPM India’s logistics fleet and enhance our commitment to sustainability. At Godfrey Philips India, responsible and sustainable business has always taken precedence and extends far beyond the realms of risk mitigation.
