Schneider Electric to electrify 1200 vehicles for its UK & Ireland fleet, and 14,000 globally

New sustainable company car scheme helps employees switch and install at-home car chargers

Wide-scale electric vehicle use expected to bring down direct CO2 emissions from company cars across the UK by 80% by 2025, and zero by 2030

Announces membership of The Climate Group's EV100 initiative to launch a new Green Fleet policy

London, UK, 02 February 2021 - Schneider Electric has announced today that it will electrify 1200 vehicles by 2025 for its own fleet. The commitment marks a significant step towards making the world's most sustainable company even closer to carbon neutrality.

Electric mobility, coupled with decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization of energy, is key to achieving the target to reduce global CO2 emissions by 45% by 2030 and put a halt to climate change. The core of our strategy is providing energy and automation digital solutions for efficiency and sustainability and we're already enabling many businesses on their mission to achieve a greener future,' said Kelly Becker, Zone President for Schneider Electric UK and Ireland.

This will enable Schneider to directly reduce its climate impact by preventing the creation of 64,400 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year by the end of the transition. David Hall, Vice President, Power Systems comments, Schneider Electric's commitment reflects our commitment to carbon neutrality, and our goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and everyday our employees have a crucial role to play in positively impacting climate. This is another way in which we are enabling them to contribute to a more sustainable future by reducing emissions and our dependence on fossil fuels.

It is also a vote of confidence in deploying a fully electric fleet complete with investment in AC and DC charging across its sites around the UK&I, with medium voltage and low voltage electrical distribution equipment. This will ensure supply, PV to generate energy, battery storage to store and a microgrid to monitor all sites' power needs and usage which helps to develop and evolve Schneider Electric's Sustainability strategy.

The scheme has been designed by a dedicated project team that includes a driver focus group, tax and treasury, fleet, Indirect Procurement, HR, rewards, payroll and communications.

In the UK, Schneider Electric is already helping a range of companies install EV chargers and power infrastructure - including the Electrical Utilities, fleet providers, forecourt owners, hospital trusts, airports, universities, city councils, like Nottingham City Council, Berkeley group, Environmental agency, Elexent and Arriva.

Select Schneider Electric employees from across the business are already trialling the new scheme as the business is able to provide a full EV solution and is demonstrating its ability by deploying a phased roll out over the course of the next three years.
