Let Us Move Green in the Future!

The aim of the project "Reducing greenhouse gas emissions through purchasing a new electric vehicle" is to purchase one new, industrially manufactured M1 class electric vehicle, which complies with the objective of the competition – to reduce GHG emissions through supporting vehicles in Latvia that, by their design, use energy stored in the vehicle itself as the only engine power and with GHG emissions of 0 g per mile in Latvia.

AC Konsultācijas, Ltd. take the view that it is essential to limit the amount of GHG emissions, particularly within city borders – therefore, during the implementation of the project, it is already possible to perform routes within Riga city and its nearby neighbourhoods by electric vehicle that does not generate GHG emissions instead of the fossile fuel driven vehicle previously used by the employees of the company. In implementing the project, AC Konsultācijas, Ltd. plans to cover a distance of at least 14,000 km per year by electric vehicle.

The total project funding is EUR 28,173.00, including the amount of eligible costs of EUR 23,283.47, of which CCFI (Climate Change Financial Instrument) amounts to EUR 11,640.00.
