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 sustainable future. This journey starts today.”

Craig Prendergast, Country HR Manager comments: “In the UK alone our fleet covered 6.8 million business miles in 2019. Once the transition to an all-electric fleet is completed, we estimate our overall carbon footprint could be reduced by around 20%.”

“However the move to electric vehicles is only part of our solution as we permanently look to reduce travel and embrace the digital world. Coronavirus may have temporarily changed the way we work but we can already see that our digital offerings, coupled with remote factory acceptance testing, are changing the way we interact with our customers and provide the best solutions,” added Prendergast.

David concluded: “It's this kind of commitment to sustainability that makes me proud to lead ABB UK; both in how we are reducing our own carbon footprint, but also through our people, products and solutions, we can help our customers reduce theirs.”
