METRO AG, together with other international corporations, joined the Electric Vehicle 100 (EV100) Initiative in the framework of the ongoing Climate Week in New York. The aim of this initiative is to promote electro-mobility through contribution from companies, like for example installing electric charging stations for customers and employees.
By joining the EV100 Initiative, METRO commits itself with a dedicated roadmap to promote electro-mobility for its customers and employees and to integrate and implement it as an integral part of its service contracts. The founder of this initiative is the Climate Group, an international association of regions and businesses who profess their support for an active climate policy.
Currently, METRO operates 128 charging points in eight European countries (Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Austria and Ukraine) plus China and has thereby created an infrastructure for electro-mobility. The installation of further charging points at METRO Cash & Carry stores and Real hypermarkets is planned for next year.
