BusinessGreen staff

Free guide, produced in association with Peugeot, offers advice on how to develop a greener and more cost-effective corporate fleet

BusinessGreen has today teamed up with Peugeot to launch a new free report designed to help sustainability executives and fleet managers operate greener and more efficient corporate fleets.

The guide, titled Driving Out of the Downturn, outlines how businesses can take advantage of the "remarkable surge" in vehicle efficiency that has been achieved in recent years.

The report details how tax breaks and technology improvements increasingly require firms to assess the full lifecycle cost of fleet operations when making purchasing or leasing decisions, as lower running costs start to deliver significant overall financial savings. 

It also explores how driver training courses and technologies are providing a proven means of cutting carbon emissions and fuel costs, and offers a detailed case study on how building services compamny Forrest has slashed its environmental impact using an innovative approach to green driving.

The report, which is sponsored by Peugeot, is freely available for download here.
