OVO commits to an all-electric fleet

OVO has signed up to the Climate Group’s initiatives on electric vehicles (EV100) and efficient energy (EP100), committing it to an all-electric fleet and doubling its energy productivity by 2030.

Building on OVO’s sustainability strategy, Plan Zero, supporting its commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions from its own operations by 2030 and help halve its members’ carbon footprint by the same date.

As a new EV100 member, OVO has also committed to transitioning its fleet to electric vehicles and installing charging infrastructure at its work locations to support electric vehicle uptake by employees.

Kate Weinberg, director of sustainability, OVO said: "We all need to take action towards a world beyond carbon and businesses need to lead the way.”

OVO is also celebrating planting over 1 million trees in five years, surpassing the target set in 2015. By partnering with The Conservation Volunteers and their I Dig Trees programme, OVO plants three trees on behalf of every OVO Beyond customer. The programme is currently on target to plant another 370,000 trees before 2021.
