Latest Alphabet ‘Green Motoring’ guide released for employees

The guide contains easy-to-follow practical advice and money-saving tips for reducing fuel bills and carbon emissions and has been updated to reflect changes in technology, performance and motoring costs since Alphabet first published it in 2010.

The guide reveals that, thanks to lower pump prices and improving fuel efficiency, the average employee now actually spends around £150 less on petrol or diesel for 12,000 miles’ driving than they did six years ago.

However, as the typical commuter’s car is around seven years old and 20% less fuel efficient than today’s fleet cars, it is important for businesses to provide employees with information to help them manage their motoring bills and carbon footprint, says Mark Gibson, head of marketing and business development, Alphabet.

“While businesses are well-placed to take control of their Total Cost of Business Mobility using solutions such as advanced corporate carsharing and electric vehicle strategies, helping the 60% of UK workers who get to work by car to keep the cost of their commute in check is good business practice too.

“Greener motoring is all about using less fuel and making the most of the financial advantages of lower-CO2 cars, which is what the tips in this guide are designed to achieve.”

Copies of the guide can be downloaded from the ‘Information for Drivers’ section of Alphabet’s website.
