Our work van isn't ULEZ-exempt. Can we retrofit tech to make it compliant?

We have a company van (Vauxhall Vivaro 1.6 Bi-turbo, registered in March 2016). When we purchased the van from the main dealer in April 2016, he gave us the impression that the van would comply with the ULEZ - but it does not. Is there a cost-effective way to make this van comply, especially now that the grants have been suspended?

The ULEZ scheme allows for some vehicles to retrofit emissions reduction technology to meet the ULEZ standards, so it may be possible to adapt your van. But the tech will not be cheap. It will also need to be certified by the Government's Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme (CVRAS). The CVRAS currently has emissions reduction technologies certified for certain models of vans.
