As part of our commitment to reducing carbon emissions, ADP is updating its vehicle fleet with fuel-efficient vehicles. As a result of the improvement in ADP’s data quality, we are now able to provide an emissions figure for our vehicle fleet: In 2019, our global fleet emitted 5,678 metric tons of carbon, which accounts for approximately 2% of our total greenhouse gas emissions.
Unified electric vehicle charging stations
With the conversion to ChargePoint EV charging units in 2019, we are now be able to capture GHG savings in real-time. To date, ADP has installed 73 charging ports located in 12 owned properties. Our goal is to increase this number to 100 ports over the next two years. When considering ADP location choices, the Real Estate Team also factors in access to public transportation, bicycle racks and storage and access to public EV charging stations in the area.
TwoGo carpooling expansion
ADP India is launching a new exciting internal tool called TwoGo, a ride-sharing application that allows our associates to carpool to work easier. The program is currently offered at operations in Spain and England. The TwoGo app is making our everyday commuting pleasant and smooth. It plays a significant role in reducing CO2 emissions by sharing cars instead of using one vehicle per associate, effectively halving emissions commuting and sometimes even more, depending on vehicle occupancy.
Renewable and alternative energy
To further reduce ADP's emissions footprint, we’ve invested in fuel cell technology that generates energy without water or greenhouse gas emissions. In 2018, the fuel cell in La Palma, California slightly decreased electric output; however, starting in 2019 and continuing to today, the cell is operating at 100% capacity. ADP will continue to look for opportunities to use alternative fuel technologies, like fuel cells and solar energy, in the future.
ADP also investigates opportunities to purchase renewable energy wherever it is economically viable. Our operations in Barcelona, Spain operated on 100% renewable energy supply in 2019! We will continue to investigate where we can use renewable energy to reduce our emissions further.
