La Poste Group and ENGIE will be cooperating for example to design refueling solutions for certain La Poste fleets of VNG/bioVNG• and hydrogen vehicles.

Philippe Wahl, Chief Executive Officer of La Poste group, and Isabelle Kocher, Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE, signed a cooperation agreement to develop various eco-mobility projects, in particular through the use of Vehicle Natural Gas (VNG), an alternative fuel with recognized environmental and economic advantages, and hydrogen (H2), a promising fuel that offers good driving range that emits only water vapor. Their European scale agreement covers 5 years. The objective for La Poste Group is to establish its leadership in sustainable mobility by prioritizing large-scale use of low CO2 fuel emission vehicles, making a significant contribution to reducing air and noise pollution in cities. Through GNVert, the partnership will enable ENGIE to contribute to the development of the promising alternative fuels market, based on fuels that are less CO2 emitting and without particulates. The agreement also establishes conditions necessary for the development of biomethane fuel (bioVNG), a renewable natural gas fuel from methanization of waste.

At the same time, La Poste Group and ENGIE commit to collaborate on an awareness campaign and coordinated communications on eco-mobility in conjunction with the energy transition.

For over 10 years, La Poste Group has been carrying out a significant sustainable development policy and today has one of the largest electric vehicle fleets in the world, with close to 30,000 motor vehicles trucks, automobiles, 4-wheel and 3-wheel all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and electric bicycles. La Poste is also engaged in an ambitious research and development program focused on the use of the clean vehicles of tomorrow, testing cars and bicycles operating on hydrogen. For the past year, La Poste Group is also involved in developing Vehicle Natural Gas (VNG) vehicles for use throughout France. The Group has already deployed 40 light vans used to make last-mile express package deliveries and will have a hundred in circulation by the end of the year.

As an energy revolution pioneer, ENGIE considers transportation a major development focus. Transportation is responsible for 23% of CO2 emissions in the world (and even 30% in Europe); 95% of the energy consumed by this sector comes from oil. Today, the transformation to mobility that is less CO2 emitting, less polluting, and more fluid is essential, particularly in cities where three out of every four persons will live by the year 2050. To meet this challenge, ENGIE is developing urban planning advisory activities, solutions for public transport (electrification, signal system installations, service optimization), alternative fuels (including natural gas and electric mobility) and digital platforms to increase traffic flows. To accelerate the adoption of alternative fuels, the ENGIE Group has decided to invest up to €100 million over five years to develop natural gas fuel for trucks in Europe.

• VNG is a fuel made from 100% natural gas. The bioNGV is a fuel composed of biomethane, renewable gas from the anaerobic digestion of waste (organic material).
