Aims of LoCITY

LoCITY has been established to help reduce commercial vehicle emissions, one of the causes of poor air quality. It offers a unique opportunity for vehicle manufacturers, fuel infrastructure providers, procurers and commercial fleet operators to collaborate to ensure we have the right technology, the right vehicles and the right fuels to reduce the impact of commercial vehicles on
the environment.

LoCITY is working to stimulate the supply and uptake of low emission commercial vehicles and improve the infrastructure needed to operate these vehicles. This will make it easier for operators to invest in new technology. LoCITY also supports the introduction of new programmes and initiatives that aim to lower emissions and improve air quality.

Who should attend LoCITY Driving?

LoCITY Driving is essential training for all HGV commercial drivers and will be applicable to all sectors. The training will raise awareness of the environmental impact of emissions, fuel efficiency, cleaner vehicles and alternative fuel technologies. Commercial drivers have a greater responsibility than other driving licence holders because they are employed to drive. They are required to drive professionally, responsibly and with consideration for the environment and other road users.
