(The Philippine Star) - December 16, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – EMOTORS, Inc. (EMI) was named the Green Company of the Year at the recently held Asia CEO Awards ceremony in November.  EMI is the country’s first and only 100% Filipino-owned assembler/manufacturer of zero-emission, electric 3-wheeled vehicles registered under the country’s two major programs –EO 156 & EO 226.

Presented by ADEC Innovations, the Asia CEO Award recognizes the importance of environmental protection and sustainability initiatives that will create a long lasting impact on the issue of Climate Change Mitigation by lowering carbon emissions. The judging criteria included leadership commitment, stakeholder collaboration, relevance, and social impact.

“The award reflects the hard work and dedication of whole EMotors’ team, and the support of our partners and clients who have committed to act on environmental protection,” says Elizabeth H. Lee, EMotors’ CEO.

“We are honored and blessed to receive this prestigious award. We are likewise encouraged to continue to do our best to create the change we want to see, by helping companies lower their carbon footprint while reaping the benefits of using efficient, clean, green, electric vehicles,” she adds.

The recognition is timely especially against the backdrop of the COP21 Climate Change Summit where an historic commitment was reached to limit carbon emissions negotiated by participating economies numbering close to 200 countries.

“More than ever, the problem of carbon emissions and pollution is front and center in the agendas of political leaders. The key now is in the implementation. The question is no longer “if” but “when” will you do something about it?” says Lee.

The transport industry is a major contributor of carbon emissions and this is where EMotors comes in—offering a clean, green alternative mode of transportation that can be used by a wide range of clients across industries from corporates to SMEs to LGUs and tricycle drivers.

Governments and consumers alike are demanding cleaner technology, more ecological products, a smaller carbon footprint, and environmentally sustainable practices and processes. With the growing trend, we may see more and more of these green electric-fed transportation proliferate in our cities.

EMotors joined the roster of top-rank finalists that include Meralco’s Miescor, El Nido Resorts, Tuks + Oil Technology, Accenture, and Aboitiz Power’s Hedcor,Inc.

The Asia CEO Award is an addition to the awards and recognition that EMotors received this year, including the BizNewsAsia’s BREW Award, and as the Green, Electric Mobility Partner of APEC 2015.
