Hako awarded approved supplier on UK’s first framework for ultra-low emission vehicles
Hako Machines have become part of Nottingham City Council’s ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) procurement framework as they roll-out their plans to help public sector organisations across the UK reduce their carbon footprint.
With over half of UK councils setting goals of reaching net-zero carbon by 2030 or sooner, Nottingham City Council are helping to pave the way and simplify the procurement process for public sector organisations looking to make low emission vehicle choices. Nottingham City Council are leading by example as they transition their own vehicle fleet to ULEVs, with 142 zero-emission vehicles (30% of their fleet) already in operation.  Hako Machines have become one of the first approved suppliers of this brand-new framework to assist public sector bodies as they start transitioning to a ULEV fleet.
Hako Machines Managing Director, Sylvie Giangolini commented: ‘We are immensely proud to have been involved from the beginning of the process. It has taken some time to get to this point but as the first fully electric framework in the UK, it gives local authorities the confidence to buy the best benchmarked electric products on the market.’
The role of ULEVs is critical as councils seek to minimise emissions which harm not only the natural environment but also the health and wellbeing of their population. The framework will help to reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality and reduce environmentally harmful by-products. Hako Machines are committed to a cleaner and more sustainable future and are continually innovating products to drive down carbon footprint.
With 2021 underway, Hako continue to develop their solution-led machine range to drive forward their environmentally focused offering. Pre-orders are already in full swing for the 1650ZE and no doubt Nottingham City Council’s framework will help shape the future for UK  public sector organisations meeting their zero emissions targets.
