FleetEV introduces social value initiative in Wales


Welsh EV firm FleetEV has announced the rollout of its social value initiative across Wales, which will focus on supporting enterprise education, grassroots sports, and local charitable causes.

This latest initiative aims to drive substantial social impact across the country, and will see FleetEV partner with nominated schools, grassroots sports teams, and charitable causes, using the brand’s FleetEV Future Fund.

FleetEV said it is in line with Wales' Well-Being of Future Generations Act which requires public bodies in Wales to think about the long-term impact of their decisions, to work better with people, communities and each other, and to prevent persistent problems such as poverty, health inequalities and climate change.

The school partners of the Future Fund represent all regions across Wales and will serve as the starting point for FleetEV's social impact commitment, which is expected to generate up to £2.89 million in social value over the next 18 months.

FleetEV said the initiative is also in keeping with the award-winning EV firm’s pledge to keep Wales at the forefront of green innovation and will aim to bring sustainability and enterprise education to life in classrooms, along with supporting the teams and causes who most need it.

The school initiative aspect of the fund which, in partnership with 2B Enterprising, has already started to roll out across nominated primary schools, includes interactive sessions that focus on growing a sustainable future, enterprise education, and gaining skills for life.

FleetEV founder and CEO Jarrad Morris said the company is "committed to reinvesting in the communities our products and services are delivered to."

He continued: "Being a local Welsh company, we know first-hand the strife that some schools, teams, and charities are experiencing.

“We also see the need for enterprise education in primary schools, and the importance of shaping the entrepreneurs of the future, whether they decide to go it alone or work in other organisations."
