Fifth Third Bank opened four electric vehicle (EV) charging ports for employee-use in the parking lot of Fifth Third’s Corporate Service Center campus in Michigan during National Drive Electric Week in September. These ports are the second installation of electric vehicle charging stations for the Company. The first ports were installed at the Bank’s headquarters in Cincinnati in 2020.

Thomas Neltner, senior vice president and director of Enterprise Workplaces Services and chief security officer, said, “Fifth Third strives to find unique ways to prepare for the future, encourage sustainable practices and reduce our carbon footprint to make positive impacts on the environment. We are pleased to give employees at the CSC campus access to these EV stations to support their sustainable choice to drive electric vehicles.”

The Michigan parking spaces are identified by designated signage and located just outside the main entrance to the campus. The service is available at no cost for employees.

Neltner continued, “With Fifth Third’s commitment to purchase 100% renewable electricity, employees can charge knowing that this is an especially sustainable choice. Encouraging sustainable transportation and providing the ability for employees to charge their electric vehicle (EV) while at work is one way we can contribute to a cleaner environment.”
