#Engines Off Campaign
There is emerging evidence that air pollution is linked to poor recovery rates and higher infection rates of COVID19 due to the negative effects it has on the lungs. Now more than ever, we need to be doing all we can to prevent air pollution and clean up our air to save more lives. Therefore, Idling Action’s #EnginesOff campaign is specifically asking fleet operators and businesses to support our project and pledge to act on idling in order to cut dangerous vehicle emissions and help protect the respiratory health of Londoners.
As part of the #EnginesOff pledge, Idling Action provides free driver education sessions and a toolkit of resources to businesses, whose operations involve fleets, professional drivers, or employees who travel by car to work, and who want to arm their staff with the knowledge of how best to reduce air pollution and protect their health.
How to get involved
You can support our campaign by utilising our free resources in any or all of the following ways:
- Educate your drivers using our workshop
- Implement supporting policies by using our template engine idling and template green vehicle procurement and management policies
- Promote the campaign and share your support by using our comms resources
- Take part in an Idling Action event – we can help you arrange a day of direct action utilising volunteers to head out and speak directly to idling vehicles around your site*
