Using Oracle NetSuite to support its vision of creating a sustainable and equitable decarbonised society, Zero Carbon World – a UK charity dedicated to decarbonising the UK through advocating the adoption of electric vehicles, has expanded its national open-source charging network for electric vehicles, removing a critical barrier to electric vehicle adoption.

“The UK’s Road to Zero strategy aims to ensure all new vehicles are zero-emission by 2040. However, in order for that strategy to be successful, the right infrastructure needs to be put in place, so drivers are comfortable switching to electric vehicles,” said Cara Naden, Project Manager, Zero Carbon World.

“At Zero Carbon World, we believe that the UK’s dependence on an unsustainable carbon-based economy limits the potential for innovation and wellbeing to sustain a society in the face of climate breakdown and we want to start changing that today. By streamlining so much of what we do, NetSuite allows us to stay focused on our vision and the important work our team is doing every day to help support a decarbonised future,” Naden concluded.

NetSuite provides a suite of cloud-based applications, which includes financials / Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), HR, professional services automation and omnichannel commerce, used by more than 18,000 customers in 203 countries and dependent territories.

“Transport emissions make up 34% of the UK’s greenhouse gases, and Zero Carbon World has developed a proactive, innovative model to help combat this issue,” said Nicky Tozer, VP, EMEA, Oracle NetSuite. “By enabling the Zero Carbon World team to streamline the way it operates, we are privileged to help grow ZeroNet and allow the team to invest more time and resources towards the important work it does.”

With NetSuite, Zero Carbon World has been able to take advantage of a single platform to automate and help streamline essential business functions. These functions include supply chain, customer relationship management and inventory management and, integrate applications and enquiries for new charging stations.

The powerful business management capabilities within NetSuite have helped enable Zero Carbon World to increase engagement with its network of supporters, accurately track donations, and streamline the management of third-party installation experts. As a result, Zero Carbon World is on course to donate 1,000 charging stations in support of decarbonising transport on UK roads.
