As part of the Government’s strategy to improve air quality across the UK, discouraging the use of older, more polluting, vehicles is key. The goal is to reduce the number of areas in the UK where air pollution breaches legal limits, and city by city, we are helping local, regional and transport authorities kick-start their ‘Clean Air Strategies’.

August 23rd sees GREENFLEET arrive in Glasgow. Hosted by Glasgow City Council, GREENFLEET Glasgow is being held at the City Chambers and is FREE to attend for fleet professionals looking to explore the very latest in ultra-low emission vehicle technology. 

The Scottish Government has outlined plans to have four Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in operation by 2020, with the first established in Glasgow at the end of 2018.

The legislation set in Glasgow include an initial focus on securing cleaner bus services within the city, in an area currently covered by the city’s air quality management area, followed by a second phase that will cover other vehicles and will be consulted on over the coming months.

Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) have a significant role to play in Glasgow cleaning up its air. The council has a strategy, and this event will feature keynote presentations and group sessions that will enable YOU to find out more, and more importantly, the role that YOUR BUSINESS has to play.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON THE DAY?

KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS

The day begins with a series of keynote presentations from our Event Partners Glasgow City Council, Transport Scotland on the national, Scottish strategy, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) on the UK government’s Road to Zero strategy, and the latest on grants and schemes.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) EV Group will be there, offering an insight in to what innovative vehicle technology is on the market NOW, and what’s in the pipeline. And if you work for a public sector organisation, we have the very latest on the Frameworks from the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

SEMINAR SESSIONS

The seminar session is wrapped up with a Q&A, where YOU get the chance to air your thoughts, and interact with the Speakers themselves.

NETWORKING

Share your thoughts and knowledge with experts in legislation, strategy, vehicle technology, charging solutions, leasing and financing and innovative technology. Our breakfast, refreshments breaks, and lunch are all designed to put YOU together, in a relaxed, but professional atmosphere, where you can talk to the people that can help you and your business move down a ‘road-2-zero’!

GROUP SESSIONS

The late morning and afternoon elements of the event will be structured in private, 30-minute sessions. You will be given your very own ‘Personalised Agenda’, designed to ensure that your day is structured, and allows you to engage with experts, and at the same time, ‘experience’ some of the latest technology, first-hand.

TEST DRIVES

It’s one thing being told that these ULEVs can do this, do that, save you £X-amount, etc. but do they really? We believe that having the opportunity to ‘experience’ the vehicles first-hand, by driving them in normal, everyday conditions, is the best way to make your mind up. Part of your Personalised Agenda will give you the opportunity to test drive the very latest in clean car, van and truck technology.

LUNCH & REFRESHMENTS

Your day begins with some breakfast, tea and coffee, and ends in the same way. ‘Sandwiched’ in the middle will be refreshment breaks, as well as a lovely buffet lunch, all designed to ensure that you’re refreshed and fulfilled… And it’s FREE!

MONEY

This event will not only help you make an ‘educated decision’ on how to integrate this innovative technology, with a view to playing your part in the city’s push for cleaner air… but it will also show you how you can SAVE MONEY at the same time! Add to that, that this event is FREE TO ATTEND, and there really is no reason why you shouldn’t APPLY FOR A PLACE at GREENFLEET Glasgow.
