Join the Clean Van Commitment


Global Action Plan and its partners are asking van fleet operators and individual van owners to sign up to the Clean Van Commitment – a public pledge to move to zero emission vans in cities by 2028.


By joining the government-backed Clean Van Commitment (CVC) and switching to zero emission vans, you’ll be helping to improve the air our communities breathe, reduce greenhouse gases and drive economic growth.


Signatories to the Clean Van Commitment include ENGIE, Tesco, Network Rail, London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and some of the largest van fleets in the country.


What does joining involve?
Joining the Clean Van Commitment is simple – and it’s free.

We’ll ask for your name, organisation name, contact details and the number of vans you operate. That’s it.


  • You’ll gain access to discussions on the latest EV tech, infrastructure and fleet planning. 
  • You’ll be announced as a signatory in industry press.
  • You`ll receive a promotional press pack to share your leadership with your customers, a CVC logo to use on your website and stationery, and have the option to include your logo on our website.
  • You’ll get to compare notes with other van fleets trialling electric vans and charging tech.


Why should I sign up?
Vans contribute 30% of UK road transport’s nitrogen dioxide emissions, which is harmful to human health. This is set to increase as vans are the fastest growing vehicle type in this country.

The annual health cost to the NHS and wider society from older diesel vans is £2.2 billion.

The transition to zero emission vans requires cooperation from fleet operators, government, manufacturers and the energy industry. The Clean Van Commitment allows van fleet operators to collectively show the market demand, and in turn accelerate the transition to electrifying the UK’s 4 million diesel vans.
