About the EV100

EV100 is a global initiative bringing together forward looking companies committed to accelerating the transition to electro-mobility and making electric transport the new normal by 2030. Launched in September 2017, it is rapidly developing into a core pillar of The Climate Group’s corporate leadership work in a key low-carbon market.


Through EV100, companies can showcase their electric transport leadership and reduce electric vehicle investment costs through best practice sharing. The campaign drives engagement and dialogue between governments and other stakeholders to collaboratively address the remaining barriers to EV uptake and infrastructure roll-out. By promoting viable business cases for EV uptake, EV100 leverages corporate leadership as a crucial catalyst for building market demand and to establish electro-mobility as a mainstream transport solution.
