Greg Archer is UK Director of the environmental think tank Transport and Environment. An expert on the environmental impacts of transport his work has influenced many key laws impacting vehicles and fuels today.
He led European NGO campaigns for strong car CO2 regulations that have stimulated the shift to electric cars. He also played a major role exposing the breadth of the dieselgate scandal leading to collapse in diesel car sales and reform of vehicle approval and testing systems that are finally reducing diesel NOx emissions.
In the past, as LowCVP Director, Greg led the development of sustainability standards for biofuels and car labelling schemes. A pragmatic environmentalist he is recognised for his detailed grasp of the detail and evidence and forthright views on how to green transport.
With the Government bringing forward the ban on sales of new petrol/diesel cars and vans to 2030, and hybrids in 2035, the need for companies to start introducing electric vehicles onto their fleets has become even more urgent. This year will see lots of new EVs come to market giving more choice than ever before, but there are many learnings for businesses when it comes to choosing the right vehicles, understanding the range of technologies and, perhaps most challenging, establishing an effective workplace charging infrastructure. The Electric Fleet conference will draw on the knowledge of the UK’s top EV experts who will provide best practice advice to ensure you have a pain-free journey to electric.
