The Vatican announces cold turkey move to all electric

The Vatican has announced that, as part of a move to reduce its carbon emissions, it will electrify its fleet of vehicles. And Volkswagen will be supplying the cars. The first two vehicles, both VW ID.3 compact electric cars, have already been delivered to the Vatican, VW said. In a separate announcement, the Holy See also pledged to build a charging network within Vatican City and in other areas it controls. The city state also plans to ensure that electricity for its charging network comes from renewable sources. The cars will come from VW Group’s Volkswagen and Škoda brands and will be provided through a “long term rental formula,” according to the Vatican. The Vatican referred to VW as its first strategic partner in the process to make its fleet carbon neutral. The electrification of its fleet is among a number of projects Vatican City is undertaking to reduce its overall carbon emissions. Neither the Vatican nor VW noted how many vehicles are involved or what they will be used for. https://www.citizen.digital/business/the-vatican-is-going-all-electric-with-volkswagen-supplying-the-cars-n332189

              This is a significant step by the Vatican towards reducing their carbon footprint and embracing sustainable energy. Transitioning to all electric vehicles will help to reduce air pollution and dependence on fossil fuels. It sets a positive example for other institutions and individuals to follow suit in adopting cleaner transportation options.
