Final Results Leaflet
Resources and Recommendations
Over the course of the Clean Fleets project, we have worked with public authorities across Europe to implement the CVD and buy cleaner, greener vehicles.
This leaflet shares some of the key lessons we have learned about sustainable fleet management more broadly as well as bringing all of our resources together in one handy PDF.
CLEAN FLEETS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EUROPEAN AND NATIONAL POLICY MAKERS
Introducing clean vehicles into public fleets
These recommendations for European and national policy makers have been developed based on the findings and expertise of the partners in the Clean Fleets project, and in co-operation with Polis.
They are aimed at facilitating the greater uptake of Alternative Fuelled Vehicles within Europe’s publicly owned or controlled vehicle fleets.
CLEAN FLEETS GUIDE
Procuring clean and efficient road vehicles
This guide is designed to assist public authorities and public transport operators in purchasing clean and energy efficient vehicles in full compliance with European legislation – in particular the Clean Vehicles Directive (CVD)4.
It is primarily targeted at procurers and fleet managers, but will also be of relevance to policy makers and others involved in the transport sector.
