Global engineering firm ABB has revealed plans for an all-electric business fleet by 2025 in the UK.
The move will see the Swedish-Swiss multinational firm supplying charging solutions, industrial automation, motion and robotics, and discrete automation.
As part of the plans, the company will electrify its fleet of 500 vehicles. The company’s transport is its second largest contributor to its carbon footprint and it claims that moving to an all EV fleet will reduce its carbon emissions by 20%.
ABB UK Country Managing Director, David Hughes, said: “In 2019 our business mileage in the UK was the second-highest contributor to our carbon footprint.
“As part of our net-zero ambition ABB UK is proud to announce that we will be transitioning our company cars to an all-electric fleet by 2025. With over 500 cars in our vehicle fleet, this is a substantial investment and commitment to a sustainable future. This journey starts today.”
