As someone whose role includes managing a fleet, there’s a chance you’ve already heard about the UK Government’s strategy ‘Road to Zero’. But what does it actually involve, and what do you need to do? Here, we take a look at the key considerations for fleets, including how to transition your drivers into zero-emission and electric vehicles (EVs), and helping to reduce congestion. We also explore how fleet managers like you have an important role to play in helping the government achieve its sustainability ambitions. Read on to begin your journey on the Road to Zero.

What is the Road to Zero?

The Road to Zero is a detailed document setting out the Government’s strategy to improve air quality, reduce road accidents, and transition to zero-emission road transport by 2040. The strategy’s long-term ambitions include:

  • Putting the UK at the forefront of zero-emission design and manufacturing.
  • Only selling new cars and vans that are effectively zero emission. 
  • Stopping the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans.
  • Accelerating the adoption of fuel-efficient motoring by businesses operating fleets, company car drivers, and everyday drivers. 

Of course, the government can’t deliver on these goals alone. With the right approach, as someone who is responsible for managing a fleet, you can play an instrumental role in our collective move towards cleaner road transport.

Now you understand a little more about the Road to Zero, here are four key areas of consideration to keep in mind in the lead-up to 2035.
