Saving London's Businesses Money

'Fuelling Your Business Economy Forum'
Promoted by Greenwich Council, SELTRANS and the Clean Fleet Alliance.

Taking place at Devonport House in Greenwich on the 28th February 2003 is the Fuelling Your Business Economy Forum aimed at promoting fleet economies to all businesses in South London.

The forum is an excellent opportunity for local businesses with fleets of all sizes to save money through the procurement and use of alternatively fuelled vehicles.

The event will include opportunities to meet and discuss issues with public and private sector fleet managers and some short presentations by experts in their field including the RAC, Greater London Authority and the Clean Fleet Alliance (CFA) on subjects such as:

1. Fuel Efficiencies
2. Procurement Options
3. Buying New / Converting Existing Vehicles
4. Save on Tax and gain a 100% discount from Congestion Charging

The forum will also feature a 'dispelling the clean fleet myths' Q&A session, enabling journalists and fleet managers to air the rumours they've heard but get to the facts on alternatively fuelled vehicles.

Examples of money saving vehicles will be on display and the CFA will be on hand to show fleet operators how easy it is to convert to these, and many other cleaner and cheaper vehicles.

The chief executive of South London Business, David Main, has added additional support to the forum. 'Business will only be interested in environmentally friendly options if they benefit the bottom line,' he said. 'The Energy Saving Trust reports that an LPG-fuelled car will travel 74 miles further on £10 of fuel than a petrol car. Making more businesses aware of the savings that can be made from cleaner fuels is entirely sensible and we endorse this approach fully.'

Attendance at the forum, being held between 9.00 am and 3.30pm, is free and lunch is also included.

There are a very few places still available, so to confirm your attendance please contact Rachel Morris at Greenwich Council on 0208 921 6242 or email on rachel.morris@greenwich.gov.uk
