Rhino goes green with installation of electric vehicle charging points

May 09 2022

The UK’s leading manufacturer of high-performance engineered doors is strengthening its commitment to its people and the environment with the installation of electric vehicle charging points at one of its manufacturing facilities. 

Rhino Doors, whose main base is in Port Talbot, South Wales, installed the charging points to encourage its team members to adopt the use of electric vehicles (EV), and to support clients visiting the facility via an EV. 

By providing its team with the facilities to charge their vehicles at work, Rhino is working to offset its carbon footprint and mitigate negative impacts on the environment. 

This new initiative comes after the manufacturer completed Made in Britain’s Green Growth Programme in February of this year, scoring highly for social impact and green credentials. 

The Green Growth Programme is designed to support UK manufacturers to advance their progress on sustainability and work towards reaching net zero by 2050 or earlier. 

In January of this year, Rhino also published its strategy on Corporate Social Responsibility, outlining the ways in which it is working to prioritise both people and planet. 

Spanning the key areas of Environment, Community, Workplace & People, and Marketplace, the company’s CSR strategy details a range of initiatives it has implemented to positively impact on local communities and the wider environment.

Stuart Lawrence, Group Managing Director of Rhino Engineering Group, said: “As a manufacturer of industrial doors, we know that the intensive work we undertake can have an impact on the environment and the people around us. 

“We’re very proud to have been recognised by Made in Britain for our continued efforts to minimise our environmental impact and work towards carbon neutral operations. 

“This new initiative is just one small way in which we are working to implement sustainable practices and bolster our ethical standing with all our stakeholders.”
