Roughly 28% of all U.S. CO2 emissions come from transportation. In 2019, nearly 6 billion barrels of U.S. based petroleum went toward transportation.
While the entire sector must fight to curtail this crisis, fleet management companies, like LeasePlan, have a particular responsibility. By aggressively transitioning our fleets to more sustainable fuel sources, we can significantly curtail emissions and get our climate back on track.
LeasePlan has already committed to net zero emissions from our entire global funded fleet. Additionally, we’re in the process of converting our employee fleet to 100% electric vehicles (EVs).
But we aren’t stopping there. We’re leading the way in changing the global culture around EVs, bringing along as many customers, partners, and allies as we can.
That’s why we hosted the industry’s first ever virtual EV Summit last week. During this groundbreaking event, experts and thought leaders painted a picture of what the future of fleet management looks like, and how EV adoption is the way to ensure a brighter future.
