Heathrow Airport, HP, IKEA Group and Unilever are among first 10 multinationals that have joined an initiative to accelerate the drive towards electric vehicles (EVs).

The Climate Group’s EV100 scheme encourages global business commitments on electric transport, with members switching their diesel and petrol vehicle fleets to EVs or installing charging infrastructure by 2030.

This is expected to boost mass rollout, reduce costs and make EVs affordable for everyone around the world.

Other members include Baidu, Deutsche Post DHL Group, HP, LeasePlan, METRO AG and PG&E.

The all-electric car race, Formula E, has also teamed up with The Climate Group as a global ambassador to promote the widespread uptake of EVs.

The initiative has been modelled around the RE100 scheme, which has more than 100 members making commitments to 100% renewable energy.
