Electrifying Our Fleet and an Entire Industry
McKinstry has taken the driver’s seat to define industry-leading best practices for fleet electrification — addressing the challenges faced in our own journey while also developing models that will accelerate fleet decarbonization for the entire construction industry.
Vehicle fleet emissions account for nearly half of all emissions from McKinstry’s business. In 2022, we took a critical step in our plan to reduce these emissions, incorporating four EV trucks into our fleet. Lessons learned from pilot studies with these vehicles are informing how McKinstry will begin to rapidly phase greater numbers of EVs into our fleet, eventually replacing all 700+ fleet vehicles with EVs and other zero-carbon technologies. Considerations for this transition include the challenges of sourcing EV trucks that are equipped to meet our business requirements and accommodating home vehicle charging for our workers.
