Who is sponsoring the programme and why?
The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). Charged with reducing our carbon foot print to offset the 6 billion fine that the Irish tax payer will have to pay to the EU in 2020 for generating excessive carbon emissions, the SEAI believe that the Professional Driver will play a very significant role in reducing these harmful emissions. Corcra are involved because they want their technology to be at the forefront of road transport safety monitoring systems.
Gencat Limited because like all professional roles they believe that Professional Drivers need to be supported in developing, refining and maintaining their multiple skill sets to ensure their safety and the safety of other workers and all road users.
