EV smart charge solution installations help homes and workplaces to go green by providing convenient, streamlined electric and hybrid car charging stations that put the power in your hands. The science on how environmentally beneficial electric cars can be compared to petrol and diesel models has been reiterated for years – so much so that the UK government plans to stop the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030. In the meantime, hybrid models are a great way to get started on driving a greener kind of vehicle, and our EV smart charge solution installations are designed to accommodate these types of vehicles. But as these steps are made by more companies and individuals, accusations of ‘green washing’ continue to arise.

There has been an ongoing discussion around the concept of ‘greenwashing’. It seems that every time a group of forward-thinking individuals try to enact some positive change in the world, there has to be a counter-ideology that questions their motives or disparages the concept in some way.

What is Greenwashing?

If you are new to the term, let’s look to Google’s search results for a definition:

Greenwashing is considered an unsubstantiated claim to deceive consumers into believing that a company’s products are environmentally friendly. For example, companies involved in greenwashing behaviour might make claims that their products are from recycled materials or have energy-saving benefits.”

Where Is There Bias?

Many online spaces, however, seem to confuse this definition with targeting any kind of eco-friendly technology in the ongoing debate to have the edgiest opinion or to ‘cancel’ people, companies and ideas. Not only do our EV smart charge solution installations charge quickly and utilise technological advancements, but they are also installed with green practices in mind.

Trusting The Science

Given how many years of research has gone into developing the capability of cars to become electric as opposed to the notoriously harmful petrol or diesel, it is wise to vet any sources that try to dissuade you from making the eco-friendly decision of ‘going electric’.

We believe in what we do, and so do the many climate scientists who back the roll-out of wide scale electric vehicle usage.
