Charging infrastructure and green electricity: KUKA invests in sustainability at Augsburg headquarters
Less CO2 emissions, clean energy: In the future, KUKA employees will be able to charge their electric vehicles at more than 50 charging stations at the Augsburg headquarters – using regional green electricity.
8 March 2021
At the beginning of the year, KUKA put 31 new charging stations into operation at its headquarters, in addition to the 20 so-called Wallboxes that had already been provided by Stadtwerke Augsburg (swa). This is because the proportion of hybrid and e-vehicles in the KUKA company car fleet is steadily increasing, and more and more employees are also opting for cars with new drive systems in their private lives. Employees can now use the charging stations to charge their company cars as well as private e-cars free of charge with regional green electricity from Augsburg's public utility company swa.
At KUKA, we have set ourselves clear energy and environmental goals and will significantly reduce CO2 emissions. That's why we are investing in a comprehensive charging infrastructure at our Augsburg headquarters and are also relying on clean energy from the regional supplier.
KUKA will, for example, further increase the proportion of hybrid and e-vehicles in its company car fleet. In addition, the German KUKA locations will be supplied with green electricity from 2021. KUKA and swa have already been working together on the topic of sustainability since 2016: Stadtwerke Augsburg have been operating a public e-charging station on the KUKA site for five years.
