Ever since its inception in 1910, sustainable development has been at the heart of the Zegna Group’s vision. The company pursues the foresight of its founder, Ermenegildo Zegna, undertaking socially responsible activities with respect to the local community, the land, and the environment – in order to pass this legacy on to future generations.
This month, Zegna Group looks to strengthen its corporate responsibility by promoting, in partnership with automotive manufacturer Stellantis Group, a program designed to switch the whole fleets – currently consisting of over 200 vehicles – to green cars within 2025. Courtesy of the latter’s new Green Car policy, the Group introduces plug-in hybrid and full electric vehicles in its company fleets, in order to reduce CO2 emissions and air pollution.
“The quality of our products must go hand in hand with our respect for nature,” commented Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna in a statement. “Protecting and safeguarding the environment is a core value at Zegna for over 110 years and we are still actively committed to it. I am very proud of our partnership with Stellantis Group, which shares our same values and vision to build a better world together.”
“We are pleased to be by the Zegna Group’s side with our clean, safe and affordable vehicle range of 30 BEV and PHEV models. Stellantis’ employees are working every day to preserve the freedom of movement for the people with a wide choice of passenger cars and to lower the carbon footprint of our B2B customers with zero emission light commercial vehicles, including hydrogen. Stellantis has the scale, the technology and the ambition to exceed its customers expectation and put their satisfaction at the highest level with efficient mobility solutions”, added Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis.
In an effort to promote green vehicles, Zegna Group will install charging stations in all its offices and facilities for convenient stops. They will also offer employees better lease car schemes for plug-in hybrid and full electric vehicles, as well as Fuel & Charge cards for battery charging. In addition, employees will also have the opportunity to take electric car test drives and get eco-driving and fuel-efficiency tips.
