Climate change is happening, and this week has been a big turning point with the U.N. climate summit taking place. The UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, stated that more investment is needed in a low carbon future meaning companies will need to find more carbon friendly solutions for their projects.
The Electric Telehandler is an environmentally friendly choice and is perfect for any areas where ventilation is restricted such as sub-level projects and environmentally sensitive areas. With up to 6 hours (depending on use) of battery life, the Electric Telehandler can provide you with all the power of the diesel counterpart with a fraction of the carbon emissions.
The announcement by Rishi Sunak will inevitably mean that more low emission zones will be introduced throughout the UK along with greater expectations on businesses to reduce their carbon footprint. The Electric Telehandler has been approved for use in London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zones due to its zero-emission status which is possible because of the innovative lithium-ion battery which also allows for opportunity charging which reduces downtime.
Digital Marketing Manager Marc Pogorzelec says “Now more than ever, it is important for companies to be thinking about eco-friendly alternatives. Whether this is reaching their own carbon net zero goals or contributing to the wider global effort, which has been hot on the agenda at COP26. The localised initiatives, such as ULEZ and Clean Zones are also a key factor to consider and it is for this reason why GGR Group are constantly innovating our range to include more eco-friendly options such as the Electric Telehandler, in the aim to support our customers in reaching their emission goals.”
The Electric Telehandler is just one piece of plant equipment that makes up the GGR Group Green Lifting Range which is designed to help customers to reduce their carbon emissions during their lifting operations. GGR Group became the exclusive UK dealer for the Faresin 6.26 Electric Telehandler in 2020 and we have since provided a number of companies with an environmentally friendly solution to their lifting needs.
Pogorzelec added “Our customers know that we will consistently bring the latest in technology to the industry. Being one of the only approved sellers in the UK, has allowed us to bring the first ever all-battery powered Telehandler in the World to the domestic market. Providing a solution to the carbon net zero goals of our customers.”
