Brussels Airport is introducing a new policy to drive electrification. From the beginning of the 2022, the Brussels Airport Company will only purchase electric company cars. This was announced in an official Press release yesterday.
The entire company car fleet will be fully electric by the end of 2025 according to the Brussels Airport Company. At the same time, employees will be offered alternative means of transport. The airport will also install more fast-charging stations at its car parks.
From 2026, as reported, only zero-emission company cars will benefit from tax advantages in Belgium. Brussels Airport wants to be a year faster. The first vehicle orders will be placed this month, accompanied by home charging solutions for employees, as the company writes in a statement.
It also aims to reduce the number of company cars “by promoting a combination of home charging, cycling and public transport for all our employees, including those who do not drive a company car”.
The Belgian capital’s airport reportedly already has 30 electric buses in operation. The conversion of the fleet by 2025 is expected to save 1,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. Together with partners, Brussels Airport is also testing handling equipment that runs on electricity and hydrogen.
