Estée Lauder to transition corporate vehicles to electric
The Estée Lauder Companies has announced its commitment to transition 100% of its global corporate fleet of vehicles to electric by 2030.
As part of this commitment, ELC has also become the first company in prestige beauty to join Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, which brings together companies who are committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles.
The group has already begun implementation of a roadmap to meet its commitment by 2030. Within the EMEA region, ELC has ordered electric vehicles for testing and deployment.
In addition, the group is continuing to invest in its existing electrification infrastructure with installations of EV charging stations across many of ELC’s owned facilities worldwide.
Transitioning its global corporate fleet away from traditional internal combustion engine vehicles to plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles will help the group to reduce its Scope 1 emissions, which supports progress towards ELC's 2030 science-based target.
Nancy Mahon, SVP of Global Corporate Citizenship & Sustainability at ELC, said: “The Estée Lauder Companies has a deep commitment to helping accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future, and the electrification of our corporate fleet is an important next step in our sustainability journey.
"Our hope is that our commitment to clean transportation will not only help to reduce our impact and engage our employees in our commitment, but also inspire similar action by others in the industry and beyond.”
Sandra Roling, Director of Transport at Climate Group, said: “As the first prestige beauty company to join the EV100 global initiative, The Estée Lauder Companies’ commitment to EV100 will help to elevate the initiative and encourage more companies to make the commitment to fully electric. ELC’s commitment today further underlines the demand signal leading businesses are sending - the future of road transportation is electric."
