The US-based vehicle and battery manufacturer, Tesla, has partnered with the City of Pasadena to build a fast electric vehicle (EV) charging facility.

The facility will be the largest of its kind in the western United States, according to the Pasadena Star-News.

The five-year agreement was made following a vote by the Pasadena City Council, which resulted in a unanimous decision.

Tesla will launch 44 public-access fast-chargers on the roof of the Marengo car park on Green Street.

As part of the agreement, Tesla will fund 24 “super chargers” for its models. The firm will then install the infrastructure to allow Pasadena Water and Power to develop 20 fast-charging stations for other vehicles.

“This is a new model. Putting in charging station groupings in denser areas for people with longer-range vehicles who live in apartments,” stated Joel Levin, Executive Director of Plug-In America, a group from LA advocating more EV charging stations.

“They can charge there once a week and they are good. It is really cutting edge.”

The director claims the new facility will benefit both retailers and EV owners who do not have charging stations at home.

Honeywell Commits To Carbon Neutrality In Its Operations And Facilities By 2035

The company has already reduced the greenhouse gas intensity of its operations and facilities by more than 90% since 2004.

Builds on the company's '10-10-10' commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10% from 2018 levels, deploy at least 10 renewable energy opportunities and achieve ISO's 50001 Energy Management Standard at 10 facilities by 2024.

Honeywell will continue to support its customers' sustainability goals with innovative new products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy and support the adoption of renewable energy sources.

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) committed today to become carbon neutral in its operations and facilities by 2035 through a combination of further investment in energy savings projects, conversion to renewable energy sources, completion of capital improvement projects at its sites and in its fleet of company vehicles, and utilization of credible carbon credits. These initiatives represent a continuation of the company's sustainability efforts since 2004, which have already driven a more than 90% reduction in the greenhouse gas intensity of its operations and facilities.

"Companies like Honeywell have a unique role to play in shaping a future that is safer and more sustainable for our children and our grandchildren, and that's why I am pleased to commit to achieving carbon-neutral facilities and operations by 2035," said Darius Adamczyk, chairman and chief executive officer of Honeywell. "Honeywell has a long history of improving our own environmental and sustainability profile while providing innovative products and services that improve our customers' profiles as well. We will continue to invest in our plants and in new technologies that will reduce our carbon footprint and contribute significantly to global efforts to mitigate climate change."

Honeywell's carbon-footprint reduction will continue to be driven through the company's rigorous, end-to-end business operating system. Honeywell's reductions will be reported publicly and third-party verified pursuant to The Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The company's efforts will result in carbon-neutral operations and facilities as it relates to direct emissions ("Scope 1") and indirect emissions from electricity and steam ("Scope 2"). In addition, Honeywell has committed to addressing "Scope 3" indirect emissions, which include emissions in the value chain, by enhancing its existing tracking system and partnering with industry leaders to identify and implement best practices while encouraging customers to adopt Honeywell's climate solutions and products.

Honeywell has a long and successful track record of setting aggressive sustainability targets and exceeding them. In addition to significantly reducing its greenhouse gas intensity, Honeywell has implemented more than 5,700 sustainability projects since 2010, saving an annualized $100 million in costs.

In 2019, Honeywell set a new "10-10-10" target to reduce global Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions intensity by an additional 10% from 2018 levels, deploy at least 10 renewable energy opportunities, and achieve certification to ISO's 50001 Energy Management Standard at 10 facilities by 2024. The company is on track to meeting these commitments.

Honeywell's commitment to carbon neutrality builds on the company's decades-long history of innovation to help its customers meet their environmental and social goals. In fact, about half of Honeywell's new product introduction research and development investment is directed toward products that improve environmental and social outcomes for customers.
