Nearly nine out of 10 fleet managers believe that reducing emissions should be a priority, according to research by fuel card giant Allstar Business Solutions.

According to the research, businesses are also concerned about embracing future business/trend requirements with three fifths (60%) of fleet operators believing that transitioning to alternative fuels will cause disruption within their business in the near future.

As a whole the industry cares about sustainability and is keen to innovate and embrace new technologies but “there is still uncertainty in how to adopt alternative fuels and what factors they need to consider”, the firm added.

Paul Holland, managing director of UK Fuel at Fleetcor, said: “We have already seen there has been considerable progress in recent years to establish alternative fuels as viable substitutes for traditional fossil fuels. From hybrid and biodiesel, to electric and hydrogen, each alternative has its own merits that deserve to be fully evaluated in assessing sustainable fuels for fleets of the future. It is important that businesses have access to the right information and insight before they commit. By talking to experts and specialists, all businesses can ensure they have the guidance and support they need to make the right decisions for the future of their organisation. At Allstar Business Solutions, we want to ensure our customers are supported with convenient payment solutions to keep their vehicles on the road.”
