Earth Day: getting businesses to embrace environmentalism

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:46 pm on 18 April 2019

Today marks the 49th anniversary of Earth Day, with events being held around the globe to show people's support for environmental protection.

Wellington car-share company Mevo maintains a fleet of electric cars, and it's now more than doubling its number of charging stations around the city.

Chief executive Erik Zydervelt joins us to talk about electric cars, momentum, and how private sector companies can lead the way in transitioning to renewable energy.
