Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) has joined EV100, a global initiative that brings together companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles (EVs) and making electric transport the new normal by 2030. CCEP has committed to switch all of its cars and vans to electric vehicles, or ultra-low emission vehicles where EVs are not viable by 2030.
This follows the launch of CCEP’s new climate strategy including its ambition to reach net zero emissions by 2040 and a new science-based target to reduce GHG emissions across its value chain by 30% by 2030 (versus 2019). GHG emissions from CCEP’s car fleet and vans makes up approximately 17% of its total Scope 1 emissions, making it a key driver to help the business achieve its Net Zero ambition.
Currently, only 5% of CCEP’s cars and vans are electric vehicles or plug-in-hybrid vehicles. Through EV100, CCEP will work to transition all of the approximately 8,000 cars and vans in CCEP’s light vehicle fleet (under 3.5T); as well as half of the approximately 700 heavy goods vehicles (3.5T-7.5T) that are used in Belgium and Germany.
This will accelerate the work that has already been undertaken across a number of CCEP’s markets, for example the transition of over 50% of its sales fleet in Norway, Sweden and Germany to EV or Plug-in-Hybrid vehicles. CCEP will also support employees by offering workplace vehicle charging, and make it easy for employees to charge electric vehicles at home, at work and on-the-go.
“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 (EVs) and making electric transport the new normal by 2030.” - Joe Franses VP, Sustainability
“We’re delighted that CCEP are joining the EV100 initiative. As such a notable brand, with a significant presence all over Europe, they will be helping to make electric transport the new normal as part of their commitment. We look forward to working with CCEP closely.” - Sandra Roling, Head of EV100
