The Energy Saving Trust launches new training programme

4 July 2012

Story from Fleet News

The Energy Saving Trust (EST) has launched a national nine-month-long roadshow programme to encourage drivers to take up its Smarter Driving Training.

It is estimated by EST that drivers who complete the course could save as much as 20p per litre on fuel.

Around 9,000 employees across England who work for organisations which operate company fleets of more than 20 vehicles will be trained by EST over the next nine months.

The Smarter Driving Programme trains employees in techniques to help them drive more efficiently and is subsidised by the Department for Transport.

Bob Saynor, Smarter Driving programme manager for the Energy Saving Trust, said, “We know that rising fuel bills can really affect a company’s balance sheet.

“It’s why some of the big players like Boots and Vauxhall have already put their staff through our courses to cut down costs and improve green credentials. Our national roadshow will help us reach other companies across the UK".
