The Clean Fleets Workshop will take place on 25th- 26th March at the Crystal in London. The workshop will focus on the procurement of clean and energy-efficient vehicles in London and will be hosted by Transport for London (TfL), Clean Fleets’ project partner.

During the workshop participants will discuss:
