Fleet News: Grey fleet reduction ‘key’ to carbon cutting plans

February 27, 2022

Fleet News features the Urban Mobility Partnership’s launch of a policy paper calling for businesses and public organisations to reduce reliance on personal car use for business travel to meet decarbonisation goals.

UMP’s paper identifies problems with the grey fleet and offers recommendations on providing sustainable alternatives, saying this should be part of clean air and transport plans. Founding member Steve Stewart outlines UMP’s desire for sustainability and decarbonisation to be central in business travel and commuting post-pandemic, and they aim to work with stakeholders nationally to help employees shift away from private car use.

The partnership calls for interventions like tax incentives for sustainable modes, and wants government guidance on alternative methods to cut costs and environmental impact.
