Our 2021 Road to Zero Report Card set out a series of recommendations for the Government to undertake to accelerate progress with zero emission vehicle adoption. The below MPs are our Road to Zero Parliamentary Champions and have given their support for our three main calls to support vehicle demand, supply and charging infrastructure.
The Government can supercharge fleet sector decarbonisation by focusing on:
Demand: Clarity and foresight is key when delivering EV grants and tax incentives
Infrastructure: More guidance and financial support for firms rolling out rapid private charge points
Supply: Continue to provide significant financial support for the development, testing and trialling of zero emission HGVS and larger vans
How to write to your MP
