    CONTINENTE CHARGES YOUR CAR AT THE LOWEST PRICES WHILE YOU SHOP

    In Sonae MC, 30% of the total energy consumption is attributed to fuel consumption. In order to achieve our targets of 54% reduction in scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality of our operations by 2040, the electrification of our last mile and employees' fleet has never been so important. By providing an efficient way of charging electric vehicles, the Plug&Charge initiative presents itself as a vital tool as it can simultaneously allow the electrification of last mile and employees' fleet consumption as well as reduce scope 3 GHG emissions by allowing our customers to travel to and from our stores with electric vehicles, which will be taken into account in our future roadmap for GHG emissions reduction.

    In 2020, the new electric vehicle charging service was launched. The first Continente Plug&Charge hubs in the country were installed in Continente de Matosinhos and Continente da Amadora. The goal for the pilot is to have national coverage, guaranteeing a maximum distance between hubs of approximately 100km, which should be concluded by the end of 2021, covering 52 stores.
