Thiruvananthapuram: Allianz Technology, in an initiative to help reduce carbon footprint, launched the first-ever electric car service on the Technopark campus here on Wednesday. The cars (Mahindra E Verito) were flagged off by Dr. Christof Mascher, COO, Allianz SE and Member of the Board of Management of Allianz SE in Technopark Phase 3 in the presence of M Sivasankar IAS, Kerala IT Secretary; Hrishikesh Nair, CEO, Kerala IT Parks and Ashish Patel, CEO, Allianz Technology.

This initiative was launched as part of the Group’s 15th anniversary celebrations.

‘’It is very important to contribute to sustainability initiative and hence, Allianz has given priority to this strategy,” said Dr. Christof Mascher.

“As a responsible insurer, investor and employer, Allianz aims to contribute to the sustainable development of all markets we are present in, including India. Every initiative counts. And I am proud that Allianz Technology India is a first mover to operate an electric car fleet for the benefit of our teams,” said Dr. Christof Mascher.

‘’Technopark houses many multinational companies, but adhering to the green initiatives was one of the main challenges faced by the IT ecosystem here. I hope more and more cars go ‘green’ on the campus. And this should also be an encouragement to the employees here to replace their cars running on petrol and diesel with electric ones,” said Sivasankar speaking on the occasion.

He handed over the keys of the cars to Ashish Patel.

“Electric cars will add to our existing fleet of employee transportation vehicles. This is a good start and it confirms our commitment to the ‘go green’ initiative. I am proud of our team for making this happen and it was a creative recommendation that came from our employees. Our plan is to observe the performance of the cars and then expand the fleet based on it,” said Ashish.

Allianz Technology already has a fleet of 90 cars for transporting employees. There is a charging point for electric vehicles on the basement of the company building. The car will run for about 110 kilometers after every recharge.
