Supporting businesses with vehicle retrofit to prepare for Scotland’s low emission zones

Next year, low emission zones (LEZs) will be introduced across Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen to improve air quality. Older, more polluting vehicles that do not meet the proposed minimum emission standards will face a penalty if they enter an LEZ.

Webinars

Energy Saving Trust will be hosting webinars in September and October 2021 to help businesses prepare for the LEZs. These online sessions will cover the impact of the LEZs, Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme (CVRAS) approved solutions, which improve vehicles’ Euro emission standards to ensure LEZ compliance, and funding support available to businesses in Scotland.

The webinars will be held on Microsoft Teams:

Get LEZ ready with heavy goods vehicle (HGV) and refuse collection vehicle (RCV) retrofit solutions.

30 September 2021, 10.30am – 12pm.
