What is Grey Fleet

What is Grey Fleet

This animation from the BVRLA explains what Grey Fleet is, and the impact on the economy, environment and society.

Script

The Grey fleet is a commonly-used term to describe the use of an employee’s own vehicle for business purposes. In return for using their own car, employees are reimbursed on a pence per mile basis.
The latest research suggests that UK employees travel more than 12bn miles in grey fleet vehicles each year at a cost of around £5.5bn.
Road transport is an essential part of doing business, but the scale of grey fleet use in the UK has a serious impact on society. These vehicles emit over 3.5 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year and cost around £2.7bn through road-related work accidents. 
In most cases, there is a cheaper, more sustainable and safer alternative to making a grey fleet journey.
