The grey fleet is an important but often neglected aspect of fleet management. The grey fleet consists of employee-owned vehicles, bought with their own money and reimbursed on a pence per mile basis. It is estimated that there are approximately four million grey fleet cars in the UK – more than three times the number of company cars. Therefore, it is crucial that opportunities to cut emissions and reduce costs are identified.
Effective management of the grey fleet is crucial with respect to three key policy areas: financial efficiency, health and safety and environmental sustainability.
This guide from the Energy Saving Trust (EST) is aimed at helping you to manage the grey fleet,
highlighting the opportunities to reduce the financial and environmental impact of your grey fleet by reducing miles driven and using alternatives.
