Further reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the UK is needed for the Government to reach its emissions targets and carbon neutral date of 2050. HGVs account for an estimated 20% of transport sector emissions. Transitioning these vehicles to zero emission will have a significant impact on the UK’s carbon emissions and air quality. 

Several companies have already started to lead the way, electrifying the smaller vehicles in their fleets and forming groups such as the UK Electric Fleets Coalition. With the Government and market leaders actively encouraging change in the sector, in this latest Support Services | Insights report we look at the scale of the problem, and the possible solutions to decarbonise the industry and deliver a sustainable future. 

We recognise that Support Services companies today, mindful of ESG commitments, face a real challenge in reporting on their sustainability impact to investors. As such, within this report is included information on finnCap's partnership with WorldWide Generation (WWG), combining powers of our ESG Scorecard and WWG's Company Tracker app, to offer our clients a one-stop-shop reporting tool for sustainability.
