Drive green and save cash

Have your say

Businesses across South Yorkshire are being urged to take up the opportunity to reduce costs, lower emissions and drive more safely as part of a new government-backed project.

The Eco-Business Driving scheme, funded by the Department for Transport, is designed to help businesses reduce their vehicle fuel and maintenance costs, and improve general wear and tear and collision rates through driver education.

The project, which is led by Sheffield Council’s Road Safety Team, will provide training for up to 100 businesses and 4,000 drivers across the region.

Coun Jack Scott, council cabinet member for environment, said: “This scheme is fantastic news for South Yorkshire. It provides a real opportunity for us to work together to make our local economy stronger and save local businesses money.”

The scheme is open to all businesses and organisations across South Yorkshire.
