Conducted by CEBDS and commissioned by iCS, a study with 16 large companies that operate in Brazil points out ways forward for the fleet
The Brazilian Business Council for Sustainable Development has conducted unprecedented research, commissioned by iCS, with a mapping of the main challenges and opportunities for Brazil in relation to the electrification of cargo transport. The challenges and opportunities cited by 16 large companies that operate in Brazil point out the lack of regulatory frameworks and the promotion of the use of electric vehicles as one of the central issues. Therefore, advances in the legislation and rules can generate a favorable environment, with legal certainty for private investments in the use of electric vehicles.
However, the study indicates a positive movement by the sector towards investment in the electrification of the fleet, even considering the insufficient policy of incentives. Some of the companies consulted have committed to zeroing their CO2 emissions by 2030, with an objective to achieve the peak of 100% of the energy purchased from renewable sources and already use electric vehicles.
The participants in the survey included:
Carrefour Group (retail); Anglo American and CBA (mining); Neoenergia and Schneider Electric (energy); Ecorodovias (infrastructure); Sabará Group and Amazon (technology); Sesc (services); Telefônica (telecommunications); Ambev (drinks); Natura (beauty); Intermédica (health); Braskem (petrochemical); Suzano (forests); and WestRock (paper and packaging).
