With the recent commissioning of another 62 charging stations in the employee car park on the METRO Campus, the wholesale specialist now offers a total of 80 charging points across its Düsseldorf Campus to customers, employees and company car users free of charge. The aim is to meet the growing demand for charging private and company electric vehicles (EVs) expected for the coming years. Promoting e-mobility is one of the measures implemented by the international wholesale company to reach the company target of cutting its greenhouse gas emissions per square meter of selling and delivery space by half until 2030 (reference year: 2011). The official handover ceremony was also attended by Christoph Dammermann, State Secretary of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, by representatives from the City of Düsseldorf, from the German retail association and from EV100, an initiative of “The Climate Group” that promotes the transition to e-mobility.
