CBI makes recommendations for greener commuting

The CBI has published a 'Greener Miles' report calling for more action between government and businesses to encourage individuals to choose more environmentally friendly commuting options.

The industry body suggests that employers and government could offer commuters lower emission alternatives including improved public transport networks, better infrastructure for electric vehicles, and enhanced access to active travel and shared mobility options. 

Recommendations in the report include allowing VAT recovery on Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) company cars when being used privately; reducing BiK to 0% on BEVs when in private use; and a national roadmap to transition company cars to meet the 2030 phase out target. The CBI also call for Ofgem to publish energy network connection costs associated with charging infrastructure upgrades.
