Your views: Government’s ambitions for zero-emission road transport

Release Date: 
07/08/2017

The BVRLA is seeking members’ views on the impact of the transition away from conventionally-fueled vehicles, following Government’s recent announcement to see an end to the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040.

Government’s revised air quality plan, published last month, outlines initiatives to tackle NOx emissions and sets out the ambition to achieve a zero-emission road transport system within the next 23 years.

The BVRLA is working with Ecuity, an environmental economist firm, to prepare a study on the effects of withdrawing diesel vehicles from UK fleets without sufficient preparation.

The BVRLA is inviting all members to share their views as part of this important work, which will inform our future engagement with Government as we address the issue of air quality.

Each survey should take no more than five minutes to complete. Please contribute to all surveys if relevant to you, based on the make-up of your fleet, by no later than the end of this week (Friday 11 August).

Your views are extremely important and your time is appreciated.
