To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality in our cities, there is a need for a rapid and wide-scale introduction of alternative-fuelled vehicles into publically owned fleets. But how can this be achieved?
The Clean Fleets Project has been working with public authorities and fleet operators since September 2012 to help implement the EU Clean Vehicles Directive and encourage procurement of clean and energy efficient vehicles.
Drawing on these experiences, a series of policy recommendations have been drafted to help ensure a supportive policy and legislative framework for future clean vehicle procurement.
In order to ensure these suggestions are pertinent and achievable, EU and national decision-makers are invited to explore the issues raised with the project in a worshop held in Brussels (Belgium).
The morning will include presentations from public procurers and policy experts from ICLEI Europe, the cities of Bremen (Germany), Rotterdam (Netherlands) and Stockholm (Sweden), Transport for London, TÜV Nord, Polis Network and the European Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport.
There will also be a chance for open discussion and debate.
