Dave Pickburn #StreamTeam update | 21 June 2019 | Clean air zones & reducing emissions
Hi, its Dave Pickburn, back for our weekly Stream update
This week I’m going to be talking about clean air zones
Thanks to Pete and to Paul for picking up the slack on the last couple of weeks
It was announced this week the Leeds & Birmingham Clean Air Zones were being postponed from January. Which is kind of disappointing in some ways, but on the other hand, it gives businesses more time to get ready for those.
Whether that is as fleets get renewed, investing in Euro VI vehicles, replacing the old vehicles, or potentially upgrading vehicles, retrofitting so that they become Euro VI-compliant.
It was also Clean Air Day yesterday bringing attention to emissions and to air quality. Anything we can do in the logistics industry to reduce emissions is good, whether that be routing a vehicle sufficiently, to reduce mileage, but its also important that we use the right vehicles in the right places, and that when we’re entering heavily built-up urban areas, and clean-air zones in particular, we’re using the least-polluting vehicles to do that.
The other thing today, of course, is its Bring Your Dog To Work Day. I wasn’t sure whether to or not, so I did a poll on Twitter (https://twitter.com/DavePickburn). The response was overwhelming of a yes, so here we go!
