EV100 celebrates its fifth year with five new members

EV100, representing the global initiative to bring together companies committed to the transition to electric vehicles (EV) by the Climate Group, marked its fifth anniversary this month. 

EV100 announced five new members of the initiative, which would further strengthen the 2030 goal of EV100, which includes major industries having over 5.5 million EVs and reducing 86 million tonnes of CO2 by the end of 2030. 

The new members of EV100, Bayer, Barclays, Allianz SE, WayCool and Spectris Plc. will collectively add 44.000 vehicles to the transition by 2030. To bolster the effort to electrify road transport, WayCool and Spectris Plc will also install charging infrastructure across their estate to be used by their staff and customers. 

Jan-Hendrik Rauhut, Global Head of Mobility at Bayer, was awarded the Global Fleet Manager of the Year in 2021.

The EV Progress and Insights Report 2022, published in March, showed that the members of EV100 have replaced 209,000 vehicles with EVs and installed over 20,000 charging points in 74 markets. EV100 reached 129 members with the latest announcement.
