Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) has made a commitment to ensure all its cars and vans are electric or ultra-low emission vehicles where electric vehicles (EVs) are not viable by 2030.
Currently, only 5% of CCEP’s cars and vans are electric or plug-in hybrids.
Its new ambition will see around 8,000 cars and vans in CCEP’s light vehicle fleet as well as half of the 700 heavy goods vehicles that are used in Belgium and Germany switched to green vehicles.
It follows the launch of the company’s new climate strategy, which includes an ambition to reach net zero emissions by 2040 and a new science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its value chain by 30% by 2030.
Joe Franses, VP for Sustainability said: “This represents another important milestone along CCEP’s journey to a low carbon business. We have made a commitment to reduce GHG emissions across our entire value chain by 30% by 2030 (versus 2019) and the transition to electric vehicles is crucial to achieving our 2040 net zero ambition.
“We are proud to use our voice to support EV100 in accelerating the transition to electric vehicles and making electric transport the new normal by 2030.”
