Reducing our impact
EVUp, along with our partner company,
EVolution Australia, believes that sustainable business practices & a
strong focus on local and planet-first initiatives are priorities in reaching
our goal of cleaner cities & a brighter future.
Our sustainability practices include:
loop EV equipment. All end-of-life EV equipment (whether purchased from our
company or not) can be returned or posted to our Melbourne head office where it
will be recycled by our social enterprise partners Pony Up For Good. Through
e-waste recyclers, all equipment is stripped for precious metals & a 50% of
profit donated to SecondBite, a charity that rescues food to create meals for
Aussies doing it tough.
& Collect. As well as being good business practice, our Click & Collect
sites across Australia means we are able to bulk ship products to those
locations & cut down our transport carbon footprint on single-item
office solar system. Our Melbourne HQ is completely powered by the sun…even our
onsite EV charging. Our 15kW solar system has been designed to power all
workshop & office activities, as well as supply EV charging power via a
dual port ChargeAmps AURA which is free to use.
- We live
& breathe EVs. Most of our team use EVs as our daily drive. All of our team
have driven a range of electric vehicles in order to better understand drivers’
needs & the nuances of battery powered transport.
offsets. When meeting with clients, travel is sometimes unavoidable. In the
first instance, we aim to collaborate via online or phone meetings, otherwise we
offset our air or road miles by planting trees through With One Seed.
We need agility to service all technologies moving forward, especially in the automotive race to zero-emission targets. Our EV charging network is a customer driven imperative and we have seen a positive interest from day one of installation.
- Steve Grossrieder, JAX Tyres CEO
Additionally, the EVUp team is dedicated to
growing Australian EV charging manufacturing & products by offering:
We are proud to have a number of interns working with us at any given time,
including those working on ICE to EV conversions in our Melbourne head office
hardware research & development. Our team are consistently looking for ways
to improve EV driver charging experiences by asking the EV community &
watching market trends from more mature overseas markets.
manufacturing. We are the proud manufacturers of the AURIGA unit, the only AC
charger to be made in Australia. This makes us the only Australian EV charging
network to offer locally made AC & DC charging.
support. By partnering with school students we believe we encourage the next
generation to build on & improve current EV technology. Our team have
donated batteries & other equipment to schools designing & racing their
own electric & solar powered vehicles.
EVUp. Charge happy.
