Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Making the Transition to Ultra-low Emission Vehicles



21st - 25th March 





New webinar series running from Monday 21 March aims to help Welsh businesses realise their Green Ambition

Business Wales is set to help companies take simple and practical steps towards tackling the green agenda with a free webinar on 23 March looking at making the transition to ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs).

ULEVs range from pure electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles to plug-in hybrids and extended range electric vehicles. The UK has committed to phasing out new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, and from 2035 all new cars and vans must be zero emission at the tailpipe, while there are now vehicle emission targets in place in the major trading blocks around the world, making reducing emissions a pressing concern.

This session which takes place between 2pm and 4pm can be booked at:

The green agenda is becoming an ever more important issue for businesses as employees increasingly demand high standards from the companies for which they work. Indeed, recent research from Anthesis found that 40% of UK workers were disappointed by the lack of effort and resources put into sustainability by their employer, while customers – and even suppliers – seek out companies with good sustainability credentials.

David apJohn Williams, National Contracts Manager, Business Wales said:

While Wales is already doing incredible things in this area, we know that many businesses haven’t taken any actions yet, and some who have started are still somewhat unsure how to make further significant changes.

The session will discuss the legislative changes, ultra-low emissions vehicle options and the economics of transition. The event will be interactive session with the option to ask questions via chat and a Q&A with a Business Wales Resource Efficiency experts.

Attendees will be issued with resource packs and tool kits and will have the option to book a 1-2-1 resource efficiency consultation with a Business Wales expert.

The sessions form part of the Green Ambition Webinar Series, running from Monday 21 March to Friday 25 March 2022, which aims to give businesses the tools to work more sustainably and understand and emphasise the benefits of circular models and moving away from a wasteful culture.

Other events in the series will cover: product design and innovation; measuring impact and sustainability skills; and market developments and decarbonisation.

David added:

We encourage businesses of all sizes to engage with our Green Ambition series and take advantage of our 1-1 consultancy offer to create a bespoke green action plan. It’s a fact that some businesses will only work with those who can demonstrate their green commitments, so it’s in your best interest to start making these changes sooner rather than later, as otherwise there’s a danger you’ll get left behind.

All events can be booked at: Business Wales website.
