Electric Vehicles Drive a Sustainable Future
Transportation is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and air pollution, damaging the natural environment and its organisms - humans, animals, plants... Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is key to slowing climate change. According to the European Environment Agency:
"...fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in air has been estimated to reduce life expectancy in the EU by more than eight months".
EV Charging Advances Sustainability
Electric vehicles (EVs) fight climate change by powering transportation with electricity, not fossil fuels. ChargePoint operates the world’s leading and most open EV charging network and builds all the technology that supports it. As our network grows, it becomes easier for more people to choose EVs.
This growing global network that's simple to use and manage helps our drivers and customers eliminate tons of harmful GHG emissions. Read on to see why driving electric is good for drivers, the environment and businesses alike.
People Make Sustainable Choices
More and more people are choosing to drive sustainably: European EV sales are growing at unprecedented rates every year. All of these EV drivers need a place to charge their vehicles.
Having access to EV charging makes it easier for people to stop using petrol. Extending the EV charging network in turn encourages sustainable choices.
Our Planet Benefits from Reduced Emissions
Driving electric vehicles reduces or eliminates GHG emissions; the air will continue to get even cleaner as more renewable energy comes into the grid.
Charging stations can run on renewable energy to keep pushing down emissions and electricity costs related to charging.
EVs improve local air quality by centralising emissions at power plants, and they are more efficient overall than vehicles powered by fossil fuels.
Watch Our Landmark Commitment to EV Charging
ChargePoint has made a commitment to deploy 2.5 million charging ports by 2025, accelerating the future of electrified transportation and further reducing greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
"Our commitment to deploy 2.5 million charging spots by 2025 comes as the company embarks on the most significant period of growth in our history and in the midst of a revolution in transportation."
- Pasquale Romano, President and CEO, ChargePoint
"EV charging stations embody the people-planet-profit framework for sustainable investing in the truest sense. They are a valuable amenity for our customers, contributing to increased tenant satisfaction and loyalty, and they support the transition away from fossil fuel. We have invested in ChargePoint stations because it makes sense for our business.”"
