Siemens to convert US fleet by 2030

Siemens has set a goal of transitioning to a completely carbon-neutral fleet in the U.S. by 2030. Siemens' U.S. fleet consists of more than 10,000 vehicles, ranging from sedans and vans to light and heavy trucks.

In addition to accelerating the introduction of electric vehicles, this also means expanding the charging infrastructure at Siemens locations in the U.S. However, Siemens USA does not provide any figures on the charging expansion, nor does it specify which models and segments will be converted first.

The goal of transitioning by 2030 was announced by Matt Helgeson, head of sustainability at Siemens USA, in a blog post. "As we look further into the future, we know that our work on one of the most important levers - fleet emissions - is key to our success, and that's why we've set a goal to transition to a fully carbon neutral fleet in the U.S. by 2030," Helgeson said.

In addition, the sustainability manager announced that a multidisciplinary team of experts in fleet, fleet infrastructure, asset efficiency and climate change mitigation has been assembled to implement the various initiatives in the strategic plan. In addition to the aforementioned faster adoption of e-vehicles and charging infrastructure build-out, these include training fleet drivers in green driving techniques, as well as partnerships with vehicle manufacturers. However, Helgeson does not elaborate on the last point in the article.siemens.com
