From rags to riches
Fifteen years ago, when we heard the word ‘second-hand’, car boot sales and charity shops sprung to mind. Today, it’s come to mean something very different.

In our latest report, we look at how the race to net zero is impacting the evolution of EV ownership, the future of charging and what consumers care about most, alongside its impact on forecourts. We also consider how forecourts can approach their strategy to futureproof business models and embrace the opportunities that lay ahead.

Investing in Winners
The world faces a monumental challenge over the next decade in order to avoid more than 1.5C of warming and there’s increasing recognition of the crucial role that technology and software must play in enabling this decarbonisation.
