GREENFLEET SCOTLAND

Clean Growth In Scotland...

The UK Government’s 'Road to Zero' strategy outlines how they will support the transition to zero emission road transport and reduce emissions from conventional vehicles during the transition. The strategy is long term in scope and ambition, supporting the Clean Growth Industrial Strategy and considers the change, opportunities and risks up to 2050 and beyond. To achieve this, the Scotland needs to discourage the use of older, more polluting vehicles and reduce the number of areas in the UK where air pollution breaches legal limits.
