Electric Construction Starts Here

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. The same can be said for going electric. Electric construction equipment is ideal to support sensitive environments for sustainable landscaping and horticulture. With zero emissions, low noise and a more comfortable and peaceful operation, they are perfect for protecting the beauty that nature provides us – quietly working to maintain the natural world with no harmful pollutants.

Landscaping is about creating life and beauty with minimal impact. It requires a delicate touch and a light carbon footprint. So whether it is earthmoving and trenching, transporting plants or maintaining ground cover, our electric compact machines are the perfect match. Zero emissions are great for people and the air we breathe – but they are also an advantage when protecting delicate plant life.

Electric Landscaping at the Eden Project

Home to stunning covered biomes that replicate the natural worlds of the Amazon and the Mediterranean, this tourist attraction in the heart of Cornwall, UK, welcomes 600,000 visitors yearly and is at the forefront of environment care. There is no better platform to accelerate change in the landscaping sector than by showcasing sustainable action in a globally renowned site like Eden, one that has played host to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, G7 world leaders and the Olympic torch. It made the ideal location to show the power of our emission-free electric construction machines in eradicating emissions across landscaping applications.

Good for Nature and Good for Business

Over the course of just three months, Volvo’s electric construction machines saved three tons of CO2 and nearly 2,000 kWh of energy, proving the potential for electromobility to transform the landscaping sector. The machines proved versatile enough to get the work done quickly and reliably, with the added cost savings and sustainability benefits. With its commitment to working with nature in diverse ways – including reducing energy use, making soil from recycled waste and buying locally – the decision to use electric construction machines in maintaining its site was a natural choice for the Eden Project.
