Commission suggests eco-driving for all public sector employees

10 February 2010

 All public sector employees who drive a vehicle as part of their job should be given eco-driver training to help drive safely and fuel efficiently, according to a new report by the Sustainable Development Commission.

Meanwhile, eco-driving, videoconferencing and increased connectivity on public transport are some of the ways information technology could help make travel in the UK easier, safer and more environmentally friendly in the future.

The Commission’s new report says innovations in information communications technology (ICT ) could have an important impact on improving fuel consumption and safety, cutting down on the need for time-consuming transport, and making the journeys we need to take more enjoyable.
