Arval implements EST eco training to benefit customers
The training is intended to raise awareness of carbon footprints and their role in fleet management, explore cost and carbon reduction initiatives, provide an overview of the alternative fuel market and talk through the tax implications for fleets.
The leasing and fleet management company has implemented the training to increase the knowledge and skills of employees, thereby providing a direct benefit to Arval customers through the advice and information that employees pass onto them.
The face-to-face training, which lasts for around three hours, has been initially delivered to the Arval SME Division. Julie Curtis, business manager within this business area put her team through the training and commented: ‘This is a great example of how education and knowledge helps our employees to provide effective support to customers so that they can make the right decisions. The environmental impact of company vehicles is an important but rapidly changing area and so it is important to have access to the latest information.’
David Nicholas, fleet partnership manager at Energy Saving Trust, said: ‘We have worked closely with Arval for a number of years and having spoken to them about the training, they could quickly see clear benefit for their business. What we delivered to their employees was a comprehensive training package relevant to cars and light commercial vehicles.’
Each training session lasts for around three hours and the full cost is met by the Department for Transport. Any organisation that is interested in the Green Fleet Management training should email [email protected] or call EST on 0845 602 1425.
