Air New Zealand becomes first airline in the EV100 electric vehicles campaign

    Air New Zealand joined (11-Nov-2017) The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, becoming the first airline to join the campaign to shift towards electric vehicles. EV100 is The Climate Group’s new global programme intended to fast track business uptake of electric vehicles, encouraging organisations to use their buying power and influence to build demand and help reduce the cost barrier to mainstream use. Air New Zealand has already committed to transition at leased 30% of its vehicle fleet to electric vehicles by 2019, under a 2016 corporate pledge with Mercury Energy and Westpac New Zealand.
