Fleet Issues – The Environment

As the world tackles climate change, sustainability is simply too important for fleets to ignore.

LeasePlan certainly isn’t ignoring it. We have committed to zero net emissions from our fleet by 2030, and are a founding partner of EV100 – a global initiative to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles.
