OPINION: Fake milk works for some. Fashionable Swedish alt-milk brand Oatly is seeking a US stock market listing that could value the business at as much as NZ$13 billion.
It includes a requirement for government agencies to purchase electric vehicles and reduce the size of their car fleet.
We wonder if someone had told the Police Force about this impending announcement because a few days earlier it was announced that the 2000-strong frontline police car fleet will switch to Skodas.
The police media release says: “Electric and hybrid vehicles were tested, but limitations including power efficiency and the total cost of ownership meant they were not the preferred option.”
Obviously Ardern’s climate emergency doesn’t mean much to one of our key emergency responders!
