Do you ever look at news reports from places like Beijing or Mexico City and think, ‘pollution is nothing like that in the UK, so what are we worrying about?’
Well, lets look at some statistics.
The UK is second only to Italy in Europe for the highest number of annual deaths from nitrogen dioxide (NO2), a toxic gas mostly caused by diesel vehicles.
More than 40 cities and towns across the UK are breaching safe limits with such dangerously high levels that they could be causing serious illnesses, according to the World Health Organisation.
In January this year, London’s Mayor warned that people should stay indoors when possible, and not allow children outside unnecessarily due to, “the shameful state of London’s toxic air.”
Still breathing easily? Well if that doesn’t convince you, maybe the financial argument will.
The way taxation is heading, companies who do not act very soon will be hit very hard with rising costs that could have a serious impact on their bottom line. Our advice is, think twice before adding yet another high emission vehicle to your fleet for 3 to 4 years.
It’s for this reason why we launched 0Zone, our new service to help fleets with this process.
And lets be clear, our new 0Zone solution isn’t because Interactive Fleet Management is a green campaigner, or team of eco-warriors.
It’s because we can see very clearly that the time has arrived for our clients to do something – and we are here to help.
