Road to Zero: A Fraikin Executive Summary

The role the transport industry must play in the government’s plans to tackle air pollution has made it the focus of the Road to Zero – a Department for Transport white paper highlighting how the vehicles on our roads are set to be ‘cleaned up’.

The government’s plan is to continue to work towards a 15 per cent reduction of HGV emissions by 2025, coupled with a complete stop on the sale of new diesel and petrol cars and vans by 2040. The goal is to make practically every car and van a zero-emissions vehicle by 2050 – a target that could have significant knock-on effects for the future of many operators in the commercial sector.

As one of the largest independent contract hire, fleet management and rental specialists in Europe, we feel that it is part of our job to understand the impact of these targets and to pass that knowledge on.

We have drilled down to the most salient points for commercial vehicle operators, highlighting what the changes will mean for your business, in the hope we can make the journey on the road to zero as smooth as possible.
