Clean Fleets project launches new resources for public procurers

11 December 2014

A series of resources aimed at helping public procurers to comply with the EU’s Clean Vehicles Directive have been released by the Clean Fleets project. The free publications, which include a guide, a life-cycle costing tool, and factsheets, provide up-to-date information and advice from experts and practitioners.

Titled “Procuring clean and efficient road vehicles”, the Clean Fleets guide presents in-depth information for public authorities and public transport operators tasked with purchasing vehicle fleets in accordance with EU legislation. Backed-up by real life examples from European public authorities, the guide shows how environmental criteria can be introduced at various stages of the procurement process.

The life-cycle costing tool empowers procurers to measure the cost of their fleet over its full life span, granting an insight into environmental impacts in addition to financial costs. The factsheets developed by the project provide definitions and pertinent information on a range of topics, including vehicle test cycles, EU legislation and policy, and more.
