Charge ahead on the Road to Zero

The future is electric

Why should your company make the switch?

Fleet owners need to plan for electrification today to support a successful transition to full electric fleets by 2030.

Ideally all fleet operators should have a decarbonisation strategy in place and target a significant Zero Emission % transition by 2025

Crown Commercial Service –On 5 June 2021 the Cabinet Office published Procurement Policy Note (PPN) 06/21 ‘Taking account of carbon reduction plans in the procurement of major government contracts. The PPN applies to all central government departments, their executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies in England. The PPN details how greenhouse gas emissions and suppliers’ Carbon Reduction Policy will need to be reported when procuring goods, services, and/or works with an anticipated contract value above £5 million per annum.

In effect this means any supplier to a government body needs to have in place a demonstrable carbon reduction plan if they want to be included in the tender. I have witnessed business even outside of government contracts lose a tender because they don’t have a plan in place.
