Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) in The Netherlands has announced that it will switch to electric vehicles across its fleet of company cars by the end of 2026. A total of 300 cars will be transitioned, as part of wider sustainability initiatives that have seen CCEP’s entire third party logistics fleet in The Netherlands now using bio-fuel, and a switch to electric forklift trucks at its Dongen manufacturing site.
Using electric vehicles and lower-carbon fuels is just part of the action that CCEP is taking to reach its ambition to become net zero by 2040, as part of its This is Forward sustainability action plan. In 2021 it announced its membership of EV100, a global initiative that brings together companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles. CCEP has committed to switch all of its cars and vans to electric vehicles, or ultra-low emission vehicles where electric vehicles are not viable by 2030.
At the end of 2022, CCEP in Belgium and Luxembourg announced the creation of the largest fleet of electric trucks in Belgium, through a partnership with Renault Trucks that will be used for local deliveries and save 75% in CO2 emissions per year compared to diesel trucks.
