Local Business leaders come out in force to drive their businesses’ green agenda!
Hosted by Anglia Car Charging in association with Lovewell Blake LLP and SaxonAir Charter Limited, ‘Driving Business Green’ took place at a hangar located in SaxonAir’s Norwich headquarters.
Transport solutions that benefit business and the environment
Guests received valuable insight into how businesses can reduce their carbon footprint. They also had the opportunity to test drive some of the finest electric vehicles on the market.
EO Charging were on hand to demonstrate their charging products and the benefits that their energy management platforms bring to businesses’ revenue producing capabilities.
“One of the best ways to get business leaders to lessen their fears and consider the benefits of installing EV (electric vehicle) charging points at their workplace and providing fleets for employees and visitors, is to put them in the driving seat. This way they can experience the fun side of an EV.
There are government grants available and backend software which provides additional revenue streams for those using the charge points. This event, however, has offered much more to those attending. It has turned into a gathering of local experts who are here to help, guide and support businesses in their endeavours to deliver their green agenda.”– Richard Seppings, Anglia Car Charging
Car manufacturers paving the way with ground-breaking green technology
Among those invited were a number of car manufacturers, who demonstrated their latest innovations. Guests had the chance to test-drive cars such as the Tesla Model 3, BMW i8 and the Range Rover Hybrid. To top it all off, attendees were treated to an exclusive UK preview of the iconic new Mini Electric.
The focus on going green extended beyond just cars. Some of the latest innovations in electric vans, motorbikes and bicycles were made available for guests to try out. There was even the opportunity to test drive John Deere’s Electric Gator!

‘It was fantastic to host an event that brought together so many like-minded businesses, striving to deliver on a greener agenda. Having the opportunity to once again showcase our unique events facilities, our catering capability and all that we have to offer, in conjunction with the installation of our new car charging points made this event a perfect fit for us.’– John Dewing, Facilities Manager
