During the Greener Futures Debate on  Clean Air Zones Chris Chandler, Principal Consultant, Lex Autolease said that Clean Air Zones is “one of the tools in the toolbox that Government and local authorities can use to address those urban air issues.

“One of the issues is that people don’t fully appreciate what these zones actually are and which vehicles they’re affecting,” he added.

“The key thing from my perspective is not taking knee-jerk reactions based on some misinformation that’s out there at the moment.”

Joining in the debate, Jay Parmar, Director of Policy, British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association, spoke about fuel types: “We know that diesel make no sense if you’re just doing short journeys, so it’s more consultative.

“Look at your actual business needs, where are you travelling from and to? And select the right products.

“Because today we are fortunate to have such a wide range of different technologies.

“And I think it’s picking the right solutions for your journeys and making sure those match.”
