Climate Positive

We're delighted to announce our climate-positive partnership with Ecologi. Together, we're on a mission to offset the carbon footprint of our workforce and business through funding projects and tree planting around the world.

In order to determine the minimum we should aim to offset each month, we audited the carbon cost of each company that makes up Motus Vehicle Solutions, including -but not limited to - energy usage and the production/transportation of resources like the steel we use in builds. Once we had that figure, our management teams committed to offsetting a greater amount to ensure we could have a positive impact.
