The UK Electric Fleets Coalition, led by the Climate Group in partnership with BT Group, brings together dozens of businesses calling on the UK Government to bring in policies to achieve 100% electric car and van sales by 2030.
In partnership with the Transport Decarbonization Alliance (TDA) and CALSTART, we're leading a series of dialogues between supply and demand of zero-emission commercial vehicles. It will formulate lessons for policy makers to be presented in the run-up to COP26 in 2021.
The Climate Group's EV100 team brings together companies committed to accelerating the shift to electric transport from around the world. Working closely with partners, our team across offices in London, Delhi and New York are growing our membership and driving market change.
Over 25 EU-headquartered companies have joined EV100 so far, while many more have EU operations. We're working with these members to stimulate EV sales and charging investment as part of the European Green Deal, and to reform vehicle CO2 standards to drive up EV supply to 100% of new sales by no later than 2035.
With 11 India-headquartered EV100 members and over other 15 global members with India operations, we're helping to shape the ecosystem with technical, policy and market expertise. In consultation with industry experts, EV100 supports members in India by developing knowledge products, from roadmaps to aggregation frameworks, for businesses and industry segments to move towards 100% EV adoption by 2030.
We have also been publishing a myth-busting series to bring forward powerful stories of leading Indian businesses already incorporating EVs into their operations. You can find the articles here.
Electric vehicle adoption is growing rapidly in North America and major businesses are leading the way. EV100 in North America focuses on sharing the leadership of our US and Canadian headquartered companies and engaging in robust policy initiatives on the Federal and State level, such as accelerating the implementation of zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) mandates and supporting the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI).
With over 35 UK-headquartered EV100 members, the UK is a key market for the campaign.
In 2020, we launched the UK Electric Fleets Coalition in partnership with BT Group, calling on the UK Government to introduce policy that requires 100% zero-emission car and van sales by 2030. As of November 2020, this was a success.
We have carried this work on into 2021 with the support of a steering group of BT Group, LeasePlan, Lloyds Banking Group and Royal Mail, to call for the policies needed to meet that new 2030 target.
