BENEO leads by example: launch of electric buses for sustainable mobility.

New electric bus by Hualpén, a leading transport company

At a recent official ceremony, BENEO proudly presented the launch of new electric buses at our production site in Pemuco, Chile. This milestone not only marks a significant step towards a more sustainable future, but also underlines our commitment to environmental responsibility and eco-friendly transport solutions.

The initiative at a glance

In collaboration with Hualpén, a leading transport company, BENEO is introducing electric buses to improve the mobility of our colleagues at the Pemuco production site. This initiative is a decisive step towards reducing carbon emissions and promoting more environmentally friendly transport alternatives. As such, it reflects our goal of mitigating our impact on the planet.

Features and benefits of electric buses

The introduction of electric buses is a cleaner alternative to conventional diesel-powered vehicles and therefore significantly reduces CO2 emissions. In this way, we are paving the way to a cleaner and healthier environment. The electric buses promise a quieter and more comfortable travel experience, prioritising the well-being and satisfaction of the passengers. In addition, with a range of 250 kilometres, they feature high performance and cutting-edge technology.

Highlights from the launch event

The launch event at our plant in Pemuco, underlined the collaborative nature of this initiative. It was attended by representatives from Hualpén, the regional government, and BENEO. Guillermo Fernández, General Manager of BENEO in Chile, emphasized the importance of switching to electric buses to reduce CO2 emissions and improve the mobility of our employees.

Impact on transport efficiency and the community

The move to electric buses demonstrates BENEO’s continued efforts to promote sustainable practices in our operations. Through this initiative, BENEO is actively contributing to building cleaner and healthier communities in the Chilean regions of Ñuble and Biobío, setting a precedent for environmentally conscious behaviour.

Vision for a sustainable future

BENEO is a leading manufacturer for plant-based ingredients with nutritional, physiological and technical benefits. In order to actually develop healthier food and feed products we need our planet to be healthy as well. Because providing nutritious, appealing and science-backed ingredients is only possible thanks to earth’s resources. This is what drives us to be a catalyst for change. BENEO’s initiative to introduce electric buses is one element in fulfilling our mission because as a pioneer in the region, we are leading the way to a more sustainable future in transport and beyond.

We are proud of this achievement and are celebrating the official launch of our new electric buses. We also invite our readers to join us in advocating for sustainable mobility and environmental responsibility.
