Response
 
We are committed to leading by example on tackling climate change, by replacing fossil-fuelled vehicles with plug-in vehicles, where appropriate.
In line with our procurement strategy, we evaluate technologies to assess their operational suitability for use within the Government Car Service (GCS) and wider Scottish Government fleet.
During the current year we intend to increase the number of ultra-low emitting vehicles (ULEV’s) on the fleet by a further 14. This includes 6 ULEV’s for GCS.
