Green Fleet Strategy and Action Plan
The Council has developed the Green Fleet Strategy and Action Plan (2018-2022) with the aim of reducing carbon emissions and pollution from the Council’s fleet and operations and improving the health and wellbeing of staff by encouraging active travel such as walking and cycling.
The vehicle fleet used by the Council and its contractors is a major source of carbon and air pollution, therefore it is important we address this and lead by example in tackling both issues.
The strategy also outlines why it is important to demonstrate best practice and operate more efficiently without compromising business needs. The aims for the period 2018-2022 are:
reduce emissions (both GHG emissions and air pollutants) from vehicles used in all Council’s operations
encourage active travel amongst fleet users and Council drivers to improve their health and wellbeing
deliver cultural and behaviour change and lead by example while maintaining service excellence and providing best value for money
