Vatican plans to gradually replace car fleet with electric vehicles in deal with VW

The Vatican signed an agreement Wednesday with German carmaker Volkswagen AG to gradually replace its auto fleet with electric vehicles as part of the Vatican’s efforts to reduce its carbon emissions. The announcement did not give any details on the value of the deal or set a timetable for completing the switch to electric vehicles. The partnership falls under the Vatican’s “Ecological Conversion 2030” plan, which aims to pursue sustainable, carbon-neutral projects and technologies in the 44-hectare (109-acre) city state in the center of Rome.

        The Vatican's plan to gradually replace its car fleet with electric vehicles in a deal with Volkswagen (VW) demonstrates a commitment to sustainability and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Transitioning to electric vehicles is a significant step towards mitigating climate change and promoting cleaner transportation options. The collaboration between the Vatican and VW indicates the potential for partnerships between religious institutions and automotive manufacturers to drive positive environmental change. By leading by example through this initiative, the Vatican showcases the importance of adopting sustainable practices and encourages others to follow suit in their efforts to combat climate change.
