Greenfleet Returns To Scotland This September


Scottish organisations could save over £250 million a year through reduced fuel bills by switching to greener company cars. Following the success of last years event, GreenFleet Scotland is coming to Edinburgh on Thursday 2nd September 2010 to show businesses how they can reduce fleet costs. This free event will showcase a range of green vehicles and technology, the extent of which has never been seen previously in Scotland.

Organised in conjunction with the Energy Saving Trust with funding from the Scottish Government, this is a ‘must attend’ event for fleet managers and those responsible for vehicle procurement.

This year’s free event at the Royal Highland Showground will see a range of seminars, where the latest fleet issues can be discussed. Focusing on the most current fleet topics, attendees will be able to hear about the latest developments and share their experience and knowledge of the issues of the day. Attendees can also compete in an eco-driving experience, with teams navigating their way to a number of checkpoints in the Edinburgh area in order to test their eco-driving skills.

Stewart Stevenson, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change welcomed the return of GreenFleet Scotland to the Royal Highland Showground in 2010:

“Scotland has the toughest climate change legislation anywhere in the world and our climate change delivery plan means persuading fleet managers and drivers to use more sustainable forms of transport. We commend GreenFleet Scotland’s efforts to show those responsible for vehicle procurement that a greener fleet doesn’t have to mean a higher level of investment.”

Mike Thornton, Director, Scotland for the Energy Saving Trust, said:

“GreenFleet Scotland is a great opportunity for organisations in Scotland to find out about the latest in low emission vehicles. Low carbon or no-carbon vehicles have a significant role to play in helping Scotland reach its carbon dioxide reduction target of 42 per cent by 2020.

“The Energy Saving Trust encourages the adoption of travel alternatives, such as video conferencing or using public transport, to help reduce transport emissions and costs, but we also know that there are times when travel by car or van is necessary. That is why the Energy Saving Trust is sponsoring GreenFleet Scotland to bring together a selection of low carbon vehicles, so that fleet managers and other transport professionals can see the low carbon alternatives.”
