BRC calls on government to ‘accelerate use’ of green goods vehicles

It comes as a new report by BearingPoint, commissioned by the BRC and DP World as part of the BRC’s ‘Climate Action Roadmap’, has found that 88% of retailers operating in-house fleets have some type of green fuelled vehicle, but only one quarter of these were operating them on a large scale

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has written to the secretary of state for transport, Grant Shapps MP, calling on the government to act to encourage the take up of green technologies and reduce emissions from goods vehicles. 

According to the BRC, retailers are “making progress” to address this issue, but without government intervention to “generate faster adoption” of green vehicles, it will not be possible for the industry to reach its 2035 net zero target.
