Two zero-emission Nissan e-NV200s were delivered to the Palace of Monaco, contributing to the Palace's efforts to reduce the estate's greenhouse gas emissions.
The Sovereign Prince of Monaco, H.S.H. Prince Albert II was presented with two electric Nissan e-NV200 Evalia 5-seaters at a handover ceremony that was held at the Palace of Monaco. The electric MPVs will be used for transporting goods as well as people across the estate.
In a press release, Prince Albert stated: "Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions is vital and our country has set ambitious targets. Our aim is to achieve a 50 percent decrease in carbon emissions by 2030, with the ultimate goal of being carbon neutral by 2050."
The Principality of Monaco has already prepared and implemented a wider sustainability action plan (SAP) that "articulates Monaco's specific "green" goals, strategies and performance indicators, reflects how sustainability will be integrated into all levels of City decision-making, and establishes a system of accountability." The program is suppported and implemented by the Prince, and strives to protect critical natural resources, remain resilient to the effects of climate change, and reduce the human impact on the environment by focusing on eight specific areas, including Air Quality, Energy, Water,Transportation, and Waste.
