TI Group ditches diesel policy

TI Group is phasing diesel cars out of its fleet policy on environment and cost grounds. The conglomerate, which operates a fleet of 500 cars, joins a growing number of companies which have abandoned all-diesel policies or are making moves to reduce the proportion of diesel vehicles on their fleets.

Last year, DHL was among the first to ditch its diesel-only policy in response to renewed concerns over the environmental impact of diesel and its unpopularity with some drivers (Fleet News June 30, 1995). TI's director of compensation and benefits John Ginn said he had made the decision because he saw diesel as more polluting than petrol and increasingly it carried no price advantage over unleaded.
