Collette has launched a new sustainability effort with the opening of four electrical vehicle charging stations at its corporate headquarters. The stations are accessible to all employees, and they will be made available to the public based on local electricity rates, Collette said. 

The stations were opened in partnership with Collette’s Green Team, an initiative designed to create a sustainable environment for both employees and travelers in the destinations where they work and travel. The stations will create a more sustainable footprint by providing a resource for both Collette employees that drive electric vehicles and for the public, who can take advantage of the corporate headquarters’ easy on/off access to the highway. 

“We recognize the role that we play in making responsible decisions to reduce and offset our carbon footprint,” said John Sutherland, director of corporate social responsibility. “The electric vehicle charging stations are a great way to serve our employees and members of the community who have already embraced this technology and those who will continue to do so in the future.”
