Electric Vehicles in bloom at Canning

Kim Byrnes
City of Canning

The City of Canning has demonstrated a commitment to sustainability and welcomed two new Renault Zoe Electric Vehicles into its fleet as part of an ongoing commitment to reducing dependence on fossil fuels and support the uptake of electric vehicles.

The two electric vehicles have been wrapped with imagery of plants and animals, illustrated by Perth-artist Jade Foo. The flora and fauna displayed on the vehicles are all Australian native flora and fauna include bobtails, red tail black cockatoos, magpies, motorbike frogs, galahs, numbats, possums, oblong turtles and kangaroos plus bottle brush, wattle, kangaroo paw, banksias and other local flora.

The City’s new electric vehicles will not be missed when out on the road, so keep an eye out around Canning for the two brightly coloured cars.

Everyone can do their bit when it comes to sustainability, from participating in initiatives, picking up litter around the neighbourhood or choosing to walk or ride bikes to the local shops instead of driving.

Hi Kim, don't they look lovely? I've given you 60 activity points for 'reducing or changing fleet car options.' This is one of our more advanced activities for engaged workplaces because it needs executive support and leadership, but it can have significant impacts on your organisation's carbon footprint. You have also nabbed some innovation points for they way you have promoted the cars by wrapping them in Jade Foos art. Great work, can't wait to hear what else you have been up to!
