Driving Sustainability
and Security

At Advent Security, we are driven by innovation and excellence, and we believe in pushing the boundaries to create a safer, greener world. Our latest partnership with the Port of Melbourne signifies a groundbreaking endeavor that not only aligns cutting-edge security solutions with Advent Security’s unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship, but also reflects our deep-seated values.

The Port of Melbourne, a vital cog in Australia’s commerce wheel, is dedicated to progressing its sustainability initiatives. In today’s world, where sustainability is paramount, our partnership with this thriving port is not just a business collaboration, but a clear demonstration of shared principles. Together, we are working to reduce our carbon footprint for a cleaner, greener future.

Our introduction of electric patrol vehicles marks our unwavering commitment to forward-thinking security solutions. Traditional patrol vehicles, which rely on fossil fuels, contribute to harmful greenhouse gas emissions. In stark contrast, electric vehicles provide a cleaner, more sustainable alternative. These electric patrol vehicles are known for producing zero tailpipe emissions, offering a substantial reduction in our overall carbon footprint. According to the National Transport Commission, light vehicles generate around 145 grams in emissions per kilometre. Consequently, Advent Security can be acknowledged for potentially preventing over 2.9 million grams in emissions with two electric vehicles.

The Port of Melbourne has demonstrated commendable initiative by installing charging infrastructure for our electric patrol vehicles. This commitment to facilitating eco-friendly practices not only showcases Advent Security’s dedication to reducing our carbon footprint but also underscores a strategic alignment with our values and objectives. This collaborative effort reflects our vision for a more sustainable and secure future.

However, the benefits extend far beyond sustainability. Electric patrol vehicles operate with significantly less noise, ensuring a more discreet and less disruptive security presence. Moreover, they require less maintenance, translating into cost savings for our clients.

Our guards at the Port of Melbourne are excited about this new chapter. They not only contribute to a cleaner environment, but they also enjoy a more comfortable and technologically advanced workplace. These electric vehicles come equipped with cutting-edge security features that enhance their efficiency and effectiveness in safeguarding the port.

In a world grappling with climate change, initiatives like this play a pivotal role in mitigating environmental impacts across various industries. Our partnership with the Port of Melbourne to introduce electric patrol vehicles heralds a new era in security and sustainability. As Advent Security sets the standard for green and advanced security solutions, we hope to inspire other businesses to follow suit.
