Call for fleets to go greener

The Energy Saving Trust is calling on the UK’s small fleets to do more to protect the environment.

The Trust has launched a campaign targeting fleets of 50 vehicles and under, asking managing directors to consider their carbon footprint and get in contact with transport experts.

By calling the Energy Saving Trust’s small fleet hotline, managers can speak to green fleet experts offering advice on reducing emissions, cutting costs and improving corporate reputations.

Information on eco-driving, fuel management, driver training and health and safety issues is also available.

A recent report commissioned by the Trust found that companies with small fleets of around 50 vehicles could save up to £45,000 a year by implementing green fleet policies.

"Companies with smaller fleets cannot justify a fleet manager and will not necessarily have anyone focused on their fleet full time,” said Nigel Underdown, head of transport advice at the Energy Saving Trust.

"We can provide your company with access to experienced fleet experts who can offer impartial advice, tailored to your individual business needs.

"I would urge all companies to take advantage of this free service and save money as well as the environment."
