WHY SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS CONSIDER MAKING THE SWITCH?

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 acheive this, the UK 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.

Where are these reductions required? Within YOUR Business! Region by region,  GREENFLEET365 is helping local, regional and transport authorities kick-start their 'Clean Air Strategies' as we ease out of lockdown, and Scotland is next.

Take the 'ULEV Journey', together...

Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) have a significant role to play in cleaning up the air. The authorities have 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 must play.

There is no need to do this alone... GREENFLEET Scotland will highlight how Scottish local authorities, Transport Scotland and The Energy Saving Trust can help YOUR business embark on a 'ULEV Journey', together!

It makes financial sense ...

  • Cars with CO2 emissions of less than '50g per kilometre' have been able to claim a capital allowance worth 100% against the purchase.

  • The maximum grant available for new electric cars is £3,000 while the maximum for a new electric van is £8,000.

  • Fully zero tail-pipe emission cars costing up to £40,000 and with zero tailpipe emissions, are exempt from all road tax in the UK.

  • From April 6th 2020, there will be NO benefit-in-kind charge on electric cars with emissions of up to 50g/km CO2, potentially saving nearly £5,000 a year.

  • According to a comparison carried out by The Greengage, an electric car can cost as little as 2.6p per mile, as opposed to petrol cars, with a cost of 9.4p per mile.

FLEET Scotland will highlight that 'making the switch' makes financial sense to YOUR business... and YOUR staff!

WHO SHOULD JOIN US ON THE DAY?

INTERNAL ENGAGEMENT 

Making the switch to  a cleaner transport operation is not straight-forward and involves more than just the Fleet Manager. We recognise that and reflect this in the content and speakers we have lined up. So here’s who needs to join us on the day, to enable you to engage across your business and make the right decisions, at the right time:

Fleet and Transport Managers are those on the ‘front line’… The people that are responsible for the daily function of the vehicles. They need to understand what clean options are now on the market, whether or not they can perform what is required, and also how to make the transition from diesel to electric.

None of this is possible, without having the capability to recharge the vehicles, once obtained. And each premises is different. Estates & Facilities professionals need to be involved in the process, right from the get-go, and joining us on the day will help you understand what workplace charging options are out there, and also what the power implications are too… As well as the government assistance that is available to make it all possible.

Most organisations have an environmental and sustainability policy and/or strategy in place. Not only to meet the demands of your own business, but also to compete in the UK business sector too. Many organisations have a strict ‘green purchasing policy’ in place and if you don’t have the ‘green box ticked’, you simply won’t win the business. So, make sure that your environmental policy departments are up to date with all the options available to ensure that you CAN compete, moving forward.

Finance & Procurement… NOTHING is possible without the over-riding say-so of those that make the financial decisions for the business. They need to understand the financial benefits that can be gained from embracing this technology, and at the same time, how it can also benefit the employees, from a tax and financial point of view too.

 

So, make sure you ENGAGE your colleagues, INTERNALLY. A couple of hours out of their day can make a MASSIVE impact on the future of YOUR BUSINESS

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 Scotland'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, ONLINE, and there really is no reason why you shouldn’t APPLY FOR A PLACE NOW!
