Globe and Ayala Corp bring Gogoro Smartscooters to the Philippines

Globe’s 917Ventures and Ayala Corp are teaming up to bring electric vehicles to the Philippines. The first batch of 100 Gogoro Smartscooters, 400 smart batteries, and seven GoStations have been brought to the country to support a drive to reduce the use of fossil fuels in the transportation industry. The Gogoro Network already has over 520,000 riders in Taiwan and aims to reduce emissions, increase convenience, and improve efficiency. The electric vehicle will be piloted for the logistics and last-mile delivery industry in Metro Manila in the first quarter of 2023. The Philippines has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 75% by 2030, and the electric vehicle initiative is seen to align with the government’s development agenda by supporting digitalization and climate action.

Globe has also launched electric-powered shuttles for its employees as part of its goal to reduce vehicle fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The Global Electric Transport Philippines (GET) shuttles now service employees at the Globe headquarters in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and the company’s offices in Makati and Mandaluyong City, with a view toward reducing GHG emissions. The Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act mandates corporate fleets to ensure that 5% of their vehicles are EVs within the government-prescribed timeframe, and this also aligns with the Philippines’ commitment to reducing emissions.

This move toward sustainable transportation options is an exciting development for the Philippines, and it is hoped that the pilot rollout will contribute to the creation of a greener future for the entire country. The success of the initiative in Manila is expected to pioneer a sustainable business model in other Philippine cities. 917Ventures Managing Director Vince Yamat expressed his excitement about the pilot rollout, saying, “We are looking forward to seeing the positive impact this project will have on the Philippines.”
