Part of LeasePlan's global strategy is the target of zero emission in 2030, and in the annual report 2019 for LeasePlan Denmark, which has just been published, we formulate this objective as follows: We have set an ambitious goal for our fleet towards zero emission in 2030 to protect the environment and our future on the planet. We do this, among other things, by being in front when it comes to consulting on electric vehicles and by helping our customers get started with green mobility. We are a member of EV100, which is a union of a growing number of large, international organisations working together for this target. However, it requires interaction from many fronts if it is to succeed.
Of course, words require action, and even though it takes a lot to turn the ship around, statistics already show that we are strongly heading in the right direction.
In Denmark, the total share of registered electric cars increased by 53% during 2019. Leasing companies' share of the total number of registered electric cars is unchanged from 2018 to 2019, so the amount of electric cars is increased through all sales channels.
LeasePlan's share of the total number of registered electric cars has increased from 0.6% in 2018 to 1.4% in 2019, as seen in the illustration below.
