SSE backs 2030 ICE ban

Energy giant and ECA Member SSE has called on Government to bring forward its ban on the sale of new fossil fuel vehicles, and to mandate corporate fleet decarbonisation across the UK by 2030.

The company said this would generate economies of scale that would bring down the overall cost of fleet decarbonisation, as well as helping to achieve the nation’s net zero 2050 goal.

In a letter sent to the Department for Transport, SSE chief executive Alistair Phillips-Davies wrote: "We believe commitments from government on corporate fleets will be important in helping to reduce the costs of decarbonising fleets and addressing potential barriers, thereby encouraging other companies to follow the lead set by SSE."
