Ikea have announced a spend of £4.5 million on chargepoints for their delivery vehicles. This comes as a major step towards IKEA's goal of being zero emissions by 2025.
The energy for their new charging infrastructure will be through renewable sources and accompanies the current chargers for customer use. There will be 196 new EV chargepoints across the UK, including at their Dartford distribution centre which will open this year.
Jennifer Keesson (IKEA U.S. Country Sustainability Manager) states "ensuring zero emissions for home deliveries is an important step" in the road towards 2030. Not only do IKEA intend of being a zero-emissions company by 2025, but they want to be a climate positive business by 2030.
This switch to electric fleet vehicles is essential for future-proofing the IKEA brand, especially as we approach the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles in the UK.
If your business is making the transition to electric vehicles, you need workplace chargepoints for maximum efficiency. Book a free site survey today with Charge and Recharge!
