Mike Brown MVO, London’s Transport Commissioner, yesterday (Wednesday 27 January) launched a new industry-led programme to reduce the emissions of London’s freight and fleet operators.
The five-year programme is set to work across the industry to increase the availability and uptake of low emission vans and lorries. It will bring together freight and fleet operators, vehicle manufacturers, fuel providers and the public sector. It will create new environmental operating standards and contractual clauses for procurement bodies to easily adopt. LoCITY will also demonstrate, through research and real world trials, that using these cleaner vehicles will not negatively impact operations.
