Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
Whether you are running a fleet or just your own vehicle, you can use cleaner fuels and vehicles which have less environmental impact and help lower your fuel costs. Some vehicles powered by alternative fuels or electricity produce less CO2 and air pollutants than those that run on petrol or diesel. They may also be subject to lower taxes such as vehicle excise duty. See the page in this guideline on tax breaks for low-emission vehicles.
Types of alternative fuel and vehicles include:
While there are potential benefits to using alternatively powered cars, including cost savings and reduced environmental impact, you should check how easily vehicles can be refuelled before you purchase them.

You may be able to take advantage of the ultra-low carbon cars grant. See the page in our guideline about on tax breaks and grants for low-emission vehicles.
