Sustainable mobility

Powertrain shift and electrification:

Our responsibility as a leader in mobility solutions is to support our clients in significantly improving the emission profile of their vehicle fleet, both from a climate change and air quality point of view. In a context of change and uncertainty, where there is no “one size fits all”, ALD Automotive is here to help clients and business partners make informed decisions about which powertrain technology to choose… and accompany them in their electrification journey

ALD’s mission as a sustainable mobility provider is to make the transition to electric mobility simple and accessible

Reaching 200,000 green vehicles: ALD is fully embracing the “powertrain shift”

Thanks to the life cycle assessment tool developed in the context of our bond issuance, ALD is also able to evaluate the CO2 and NOx avoided by its green fleet, through a life-cycle approach. The financed part of this fleet, recorded on the balance sheet of ALD, saves 217,000 tons of equivalent CO2 and 907 tons of equivalent nitrogen oxide per year, compared to an internal combustion engine fleet of equivalent power.

Financing the shift to electric

In September 2019, the EIB granted a EUR 250m credit envelope to enable ALD’s development of its range of hybrid and electric vehicles across the EU, particularly in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands, making it possible to purchase a total of 15,000 vehicles.

On 4 October 2018, ALD successfully issued its first positive-impact bond, of EUR 500 million with a 4-year maturity. The funds raised are exclusively used to (re)finance a fleet of electric and hybrid vehicles selected according to their climate and environmental impact.

New mobility solutions

ALD Automotive also places a strategic focus on investing in new mobility solutions that will transform car usage, fostering new behaviors that are gradually shifting the model away from the traditional “one user-one car” scenario. ALD identified three priority areas in which to innovate by 2020: digital and connected vehicles, flexibility, and new mobility solutions including corporate car-sharing.

Safety

ALD develops a comprehensive approach with a single objective: reduce the cost of accidents, whether human, financial or environmental, with safe and ecological driving going hand in hand.

Acting on behaviour and change management.
An e-learning offer (ALD Safe Drive) is proposed jointly by ALD and its North American partner Wheels Inc. to international large corporate customers in all countries where they operate. The companies that have offered these training courses to their employees have seen a very significant fall in their accident rates (responsible accident rates halved), as well as a significant drop in fuel consumption (around 15%). The ALD Safe Drive global offer is currently available in seven countries, and on top, more than 30 Group countries offer local physical or online training.
