Speaking at the launch last night, Deputy Prime Minister Viliame Gavoka hailed the integration of electric vehicles (EV) into Fiji’s tourism transportation network as a paradigm shift towards environmental conservation.

Gavoka commends Rosie Holidays for their proactive approach and partnership with sustainable energy leaders, stating that each electric vehicle in their fleet symbolizes progress towards a more sustainable future.

“We understand that responsible tourism is not a choice, but an imperative, a delicate balance between visual experiences and environmental conservatism. We believe that sustainable tourism is an ongoing journey, one that demands constant innovation and an overwhelming dedication to conserving our natural heritage.”

Rosie Holidays Managing Director Tony Whitton echoed Gavoka’s sentiments, emphasizing the company’s dedication to sustainability and the preservation of Fiji’s pristine environment.

Whitton highlights that this initiative marks the first step towards their goal of transitioning to a 100% fleet of zero-emission vehicles.

He says as a Fijian family-owned company, sustainability and the preservation of the environment is paramount.

The company invested $1m to bring in three electric vehicles.
