7 additional Companies join EV100 initiative

The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative has gained seven new Companies as members. As usual with the initiative, the members commit to completely electrifying their company fleets by 2030.

The new EV100 members are:
M Group Services and Kier, SK Networks , Nichicon, Gilead Sciences, Mack-Cali Realty and NRG Energy.

Besides electrifying their fleets, these companies also plan to install charging stations at 140 locations for employees and customers.

In its announcement, the Climate Group highlights two new members: M Group Services is said to be the fifth-largest fleet operator in the UK. Gilead Sciences has also joined the Climate Group’s RE100 initiative which means that it is committing to sourcing only renewable electricity by 2025.

“It’s encouraging that so many additional companies this year have recognised the vital role they have in tackling the climate crisis and the critical opportunity offered in transportation electrification,” said Sandra Roling, Head of Transport, Climate Group. “As COP26 progresses, we hope that the ambition and leadership shown by EV100 members is matched by world leaders.”

The Climate Group launched the EV100 initiative in 2017. The NGO says that in the current year alone, 440,000 vehicles have been added so far.
