“The net-zero transition is real, and it’s already in progress. Governments, businesses, and consumers around the world are spending to make greener choices, including on electric vehicles. But to achieve scale, we need to take an ecosystem view. It’s not anyone green technology alone that will move the needle, but rather the ability to create the supporting infrastructure that allows for widespread adoption. That’s what we like about Loop, it helps reduce the barriers to cleaner transport for more people.”

Mr. Dustin Cavanaugh, Co-Founder and CEO of Loop noted that, “Loop is streamlining this transition by making next-generation EV-charging infrastructure solutions for property owners that are uniquely affordable and provide the lowest total cost of ownership on the market.”

Agility has committed more than $170 million to investments in sustainable transportation, energy, and technology. Its portfolio includes investments in Hyliion, Frete, Volta Trucks, Swvl, and TVP Solar.
