The Estée Lauder Companies to Add EVs
The Estée Lauder Companies (ELC) announced its commitment to transition 100% of its global corporate fleet of vehicles to electric by 2030.
ELC’s transition of its corporate fleet to 100% electric will contribute toward reducing the company’s Scope 1 GHG emissions, which supports progress towards its 2030 science-based target (SBT).
“The Estée Lauder Companies has a deep commitment to helping accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future, and the electrification of our corporate fleet is an important next step in our sustainability journey,” said Nancy Mahon, Senior Vice President, Global Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability, The Estée Lauder Companies in a statement.
In 2020, the company achieved its goal to source 100% renewable electricity for its direct operations, reaching the target it set upon joining RE100.
Within its Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region, the company has ordered EVs for testing and deployment and will continue to partner with site managers and work to expand the necessary charging infrastructure to support its fleet.
The company is also furthering its efforts to reduce emissions from transportation and distribution activities that contribute to the company’s Scope 3 footprint. Efforts to move to low-emissions vehicles are underway, in partnership with ELC's third-party partners and suppliers. For example, ELC has begun transitioning local transportation vehicles from diesel trucks to EVs in regions such as Canada and Switzerland.
The company continues to invest in its existing electrification infrastructure with installations of EV charging stations across many of ELC’s owned facilities worldwide, including Melville, New York; Blaine, Minnesota; Petersfield, United Kingdom; Markham, Ontario; and its newest state-of-the-art distribution center in Galgenen, Switzerland.
