Ingka Group, as a member of EV100, signs global declaration on accelerating the transition to 100% zero emission cars and vans
Ingka Group is determined to lead the movement towards 100 percent zero emission and has committed to have 100 percent zero emission for home deliveries by 2025. Through the Climate Group, and as a member of EV100, Ingka Group has now signed a global declaration on accelerating the transition to 100 percent zero emission cars and vans.
The declaration is the result of a collaboration between The Climate Group, the UK government and the UN High Level Climate Champions, through the RouteZero platform, which Ingka Group is closely connected to. Ingka Group has signed alongside a range of actors, including other EV100 members, governments, OEMs, and investors.
“We have deployed zero emission vehicles in 22 countries and we have over 500 zero emission trucks in operation around the world. We are doing everything we can to reach 100 percent zero emissions for home deliveries by 2025, and together with our partners, we commit to rapidly accelerating the transition to zero emission home deliveries to support in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement”, says Juvencio Maetzu, Chief Finance Officer, Ingka Group.
The signees commit to working towards all sales of new cars and vans to be zero emission globally by 2040, and by no later than 2035 in leading markets. Ingka Group is committed to leading this movement with even more ambitious goals, and collaboration with others as vital to push this movement forward with speed.
