ABB to switch to all-electric vehicle fleet in the UK

ABB announces the transition to an all-electric vehicle fleet in the UK by 2025. The Swiss-Swedish supplier of charging infrastructure runs 500 cars in its fleet in Britain.

The pledge is part of a campaign on the occassion of the World EV day on 9 September and an ecologic advance. David Hughes, ABB UK Country Managing Director, 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.”

Craig Prendergast, Country HR Manager, added that “once the transition to an all-electric fleet is completed, we estimate our overall carbon footprint could be reduced by around 20%.”

ABB, formerly ASEA Brown Boveri, is a Swiss-Swedish multinational corporation headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland and Västerås, Sweden. They have been active in all areas of electrification, mostly supplying charging solutions to industrial applications. Recently, ABB entered the home charging market with the Terra Wallbox, an AC device.
