Swedish multinational power company Vattenfall and Coca-Cola Sweden have partnered up to establish three truck charging stations at Coca-Cola Europacific Partnersclimate-neutral facility in Jordbro, located just outside Stockholm.

This partnership represents a significant step in their investment toward adopting electric-powered heavy goods vehicles. It is part of their commitment to achieving net zero emissions across their entire value chains by 2040.

Head of Vattenfall Network Solutions, Ingela Hålling, emphasized the importance of developing new solutions and partnerships to mitigate environmental and climate impacts within the transportation system.

Hålling also mentioned that Vattenfall has assisted in the pilot project, providing support and leveraging lessons learned to optimize the charging solution according to customer and hauler needs.

The executive highlighted Vattenfall’s comprehensive “Power-as-a-Service” solution, wherein they take responsibility for investing in the charging infrastructure, owning, operating and ensuring the functionality of the charging stations throughout the contract period. This arrangement allows the customer to focus on their core business.

Coca-Cola’s Progress in Emissions Reduction Efforts

According to Lisa Wahlström, sustainability director at Coca-Cola Europacific Partners in Sweden, significant efforts have been made to reduce emissions from company vehicles and shipments over an extended period.

Wahlström said that since 2021, all domestically procured shipments have been fueled entirely by fossil-free sources, and charging stations have been installed at the plant for company vehicles and passenger cars.

The next phase of the company’s sustainability journey involves introducing electric-powered heavy goods vehicles and the corresponding charging infrastructure.

Besides its partnership with Vattenfall, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners has undertaken previous initiatives to achieve zero emissions. Last year, the company joined EV100, a global initiative that brings together companies to accelerate the adoption of EVs and make electric transportation the norm by 2030.

Coca-Cola Europacific Partners has also committed to transitioning its entire fleet of cars and vans to electric vehicles by 2030. In cases where EVs are not viable, it has pledged to shift to ultra-low-emission vehicles to significantly cut its carbon emissions.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola and 30 other well-known companies such as AstraZeneca, An Post, Grundfos, IKEA, Tesco, SAP and Unilever have penned an open letter to the European Commission advocating for a significant transition to EVs.

This consortium proposed that by 2030 all new company cars and vans should be electric, a target five years ahead of the 2035 deadline for phasing out internal combustion engine vehicles.
