Technology company ABB has announced plans to transition its UK fleet of company cars to EVs in the next five years.

The UK branch of the global business, which reportedly covered 6.8 million miles across the country last year, is now working towards reducing its carbon footprint by around 20%.

David Hughes, managing director, ABB UK, 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.”

Furthermore, ABB said it will look to reduce general business travel as the company shifts to using more digital solutions. This follows the successful implementation of remote factory acceptance testing during lockdown.
