What is Eco-Driving?
Did you know that transport is a major contributor to UK greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for approximately 22 per cent of all domestic emissions? With the UK Government setting out plans to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, and the ever-growing increase in fuel costs, your organisation is proactive in taking the necessary steps to reduce its carbon footprint and save money.
Eco-driving, also known as efficient driving, is a method of driving a vehicle more efficiently and economically, helping lower fuel use and reduce environmental impact.
As we become more aware of the devastation caused to our planet’s resources, we need to look for alternative ways to reduce our impact on the environment, especially when behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Why take the RoSPA Eco-Driving course?
The online Eco-Driving course is designed to teach drivers techniques on how to drive vehicles more economically. As well as making journeys more efficient and reducing fuel consumption, eco-driving can contribute towards improving road safety, as many of the techniques learnt can help lower the risk of collisions and reduce the wear and tear of vehicles. Saving your organisation time and money.
Plus, driving more economically offers huge benefits for our environment by cutting down on carbon emissions and improving the air quality.
