Largest MINI Cooper SE fleet in Europe: One in four Deloitte employees in Belgium chooses a MINI Electric.

BMW:Largest MINI Cooper SE fleet in Europe: One in four Deloitte employees in Belgium chooses a MINI Electric.

More and more young people are opting for an electric company car: at
Deloitte alone, 26% of employees do. To meet this growing demand,
Deloitte has ordered 140 electric MINIs. According to BMW, this is the
largest order of fully electric MINIs in Europe so far. With an
additional charging infrastructure, Deloitte wants to make a
significant contribution to climate neutrality.

Deloitte added the first 100 MINI Electric to its fleet back in
August last year. Now the company announces that it is adding 140 new
MINI Electric to its electric fleet. Deloitte’s fleet now has 240 MINI
Electric. The fully electric MINIs with the eye-catching green
rear-view mirrors in Deloitte colour are particularly popular with new
employees. In total, Deloitte has ordered 540 new MINIs since June
this year.

The growing popularity of electric cars at Deloitte goes hand in hand
with the increasing demand for hybrid vehicles at the company. As of
June 2021, electric and hybrid cars together account for 88% of all
company cars ordered at Deloitte. This clearly shows that employees
prefer sustainable alternatives to conventional cars with internal
combustion engines. In addition to purchasing electric cars, Deloitte
is investing heavily in its electric vehicle infrastructure. For
example, the Belgian office currently has 540 charging stations for
electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.

“All our investments in sustainable mobility are part of
Deloitte’s goal to be CO2 neutral by 2030. As our fleet accounts for
70% of our carbon footprint, every small and big step brings us closer
to carbon neutrality. That’s why we launched a new mobility programme
in 2017. We have also been working successfully with MINI for many
years and I am delighted that we are working with them to increase
enthusiasm for electric cars at Deloitte. The fact that one in four
new employees now chooses an electric car gives me full confidence
that we are on the right track to make Deloitte a pioneer in
sustainable mobility,” says Piet Vandendriessche, CEO of Deloitte Belgium.
