As part of this effort, ELC also became the first Prestige Beauty company to join Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, which brings together companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles (EVs).
“The Estée Lauder Companies is deeply committed to helping accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future, and the electrification of our company-wide fleet is an important next step in our sustainability efforts. said Nancy Mahon, Senior Vice President, Global Citizenship Sustainability, The Estée Lauder Companies. “Our hope is that our commitment to clean transportation will not only help us reduce our impact and involve our employees in our efforts, but also encourage others inside and outside our industry to do the same. It is a call to action.”
ELC builds initiatives to address the impacts associated with its own direct business on the climate. In 2020, the company has achieved its goal of supplying his direct business with 100% renewable electricity, surpassing the target set when joining RE1001.
Moving ELC’s global corporate fleet from traditional internal combustion engine vehicles to plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles will help address one of ELC’s more significant sources of Scope 1 emissions.
The company has already started implementing a roadmap to meet this commitment by 2030. Within the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, the company has ordered EVs for testing and deployment and will continue to work with site managers.

ELC’s latest commitment addresses its directly managed fleet, but the company is also working to reduce emissions from its transportation and distribution activities that contribute to its Scope 3 footprint. Efforts to transition to lower emission vehicles are underway with ELC’s third-party partners and suppliers. For example, ELC has begun transitioning local transportation fleets from diesel trucks to EVs in regions such as Canada and Switzerland.
Additionally, as part of the company’s commitment to getting employees on the electric transportation journey, the company continues to invest in its existing electrified infrastructure, with EV charging at many of its ELC-owned facilities around the world, including Melville, New York.
