THE BVRLA says it wants to continue placing the fleet and mobility services industry at centre stage of the decarbonisation debate, by investing further in training, research and public affairs.

The BVRLA says this is necessary to meet an unprecedented wave of regulatory and legislative change. 

2022 is set to be a pivotal year for our industry. The policies that government and regulators are working on this year – road pricing, the zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) sales mandate and the new Consumer Duty – will set the operating environment for the next decade. Our lobbying priorities are developed with the needs of all BVRLA members in mind and we have ambitious plans to invest across our services to ensure we deliver.

Gerry Keaney, chief executive, BVRLA

The association has published new vision and mission statements to keep activity on track and enable members to hold it to account. They are:

BVRLA Vision

To see Government and Industry united in delivering zero-emission road transport that provides environmental, social and economic benefits to everyone.

BVRLA Mission

To inform, inspire and influence the automotive community in meeting the road transport needs of society.

BVRLA Purpose

To be an indispensable resource and champion for the road transport community.

Keaney added: “The rate of change being experienced by the rental and leasing community continues to gather pace and we are collectively under more scrutiny than ever. It is vital for the BVRLA to have a consistent set of guiding principles that show the positive outcomes we are working towards and how we are going to achieve them.”

BVRLA in numbers 2021

Beyond the investments into public affairs and research, the BVRLA added it will continue to upgrade its digital capabilities, building on its existing Cyber Essentials Plus and new IASME Gold accreditations.

It comes as the BVRLA said it had reached the highest level of membership to date, with 1,022 members, up from 974 year-on-year.
