Globe Platinum and Gogoro Philippines, a leader in electric vehicle innovations, have joined forces to bring the future of mobility closer to customers, enabling them to minimize their carbon footprint by lessening air pollution in the metropolis.

The partnership represents Globe Platinum’s commitment to advocacies that matter, support for which can have a positive effect on how we live.

Gogoro is Globe’s debut in climate tech. The company envisions the two-wheel electric vehicle (EV) to contribute to reducing carbon emissions as more and more gas-fed cars cram Philippine roads. An average gasoline-powered car emits an estimated 4.6 metric tons of carbon per year, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

A three-month pilot test among 60 Globe employees last year resulted in 3,316 kg of carbon emissions avoided over a total travel distance of 42,399 km ridden. This amounts to removing harmful CO2 equivalent to consuming roughly 1,412 liters of gasoline, helping curb pollution in the crowded metropolis while also saving on fuel costs as petroleum prices continue to rise.

Bernie Llamzon, President and CEO of Gogoro Philippines said, “We are thrilled to partner with Globe Platinum to bring our innovative electric mobility solutions to their discerning customers. Together, we are paving the way for a sustainable future one ride at a time.”
