The change to environmentally friendly vehicles at Innsbrucker Kommunalbetriebe (IKB) began more than ten years ago. Experience with electric vehicles has been gained since 2010, and the IKB now has 32 e-cars, 32 e-bikes and 9 e-scooters. “Our goal is to make our entire vehicle fleet climate-neutral by 2030,” emphasizes IKB CEO Helmuth Müller. “So that we are also one big step closer to the goal of climate neutrality for the entire IKB. Environmentally friendly mobility makes a decisive contribution to achieving the climate goals.”
Every year, the e-vehicle fleet saves more than 30 tons of direct CO2 emissions compared to fossil-fueled vehicles. In addition to e-cars, many IKB employees and employees are also switching to electrically powered bicycles or scooters for their business trips. The e-bike fleet covers around 5,000 kilometers every year.
In addition to the company’s internal vehicle fleet, IKB supports electromobility in Innsbruck and Tyrol. More than 150 charging points have already been installed in the public charging network in central Tyrol. “With the expansion of the e-charging stations, we are making it easier for Tyroleans to switch to environmentally friendly vehicles,” said IKB board director Thomas Pühringer. The most frequently visited IKB e-charging stations are in Schönberg, on Salurner Strasse in Innsbruck and at the DEZ shopping center.
