Capgemini now only allows orders for fully electrically powered cars or hybrid vehicles for its own company vehicle fleet. The current 12.000 diesel and gasoline vehicles will be replaced in this way - with the goal of a fully electric fleet by 2030. Capgemini has the ambition to achieve CO2 neutrality by 2025 and net zero emissions, i.e. including the entire supply chain, by Year 2030. 
In this context, Capgemini has joined the EV100 initiative, which connects companies on their way to a 100 percent electric vehicle fleet. Before the Corona period, company vehicles caused up to ten percent of the CO2 emissions that were caused by the travel activities of Capgemini employees. Therefore, significant savings can be expected here. The new vehicle directive is part of a broader program that aims to reduce travel overall and encourage the use of more sustainable modes of transport.
The Capgemini Group has concluded contracts with selected leasing companies and vehicle manufacturers for the new vehicle directive. This year alone, around 13 percent of internal combustion engines will drop out of the vehicle fleet, and another 24 percent in the coming year. By the end of 2022, more than half of the fleet will consist of fully electric or hybrid vehicles, 100 percent will be achieved by the end of 2025.
Sabine Reuss, Head of the Corporate Social Responsibility Board at Capgemini in Germany, sums up: “Concern about the impact of CO2 emissions on climate change and its consequences is growing stronger than ever. As a global company, we are therefore committed to the transition to sustainable mobility. The path to a fully electric vehicle fleet is an important step in this regard. We look forward to doing it together with other organizations of the EV100 initiative and getting closer to our net zero goal. "
In addition to the vehicle fleet, Capgemini is also building the corresponding charging infrastructure in the buildings used by the company. As part of this, the entire power supply at Capgemini will be completely converted to renewable energies by 2025.  Membership in the EV100 electric vehicle initiative facilitates the company's transition to Net-Zero through mutual exchange of experiences and strengthens the public commitment to electromobility. Members of the EV-100 initiative are jointly driving the broader agenda for sustainable transformation and stimulating policy changes towards the acceptance of electric vehicles.
