quotes
  • "Had VECAP been a regulatory measure, with overall UK emission reductions of 75% in its first year, it would have been hailed as a major success. That it was achieved as an industry voluntary commitment means that this level of environmental protection was attained far faster and with great savings. We look forward to the next year's developments."
