Transport is the fastest growing source of global greenhouse gas emissions and the biggest emitting sector of the UK economy.
As hosts of the COP26 UN climate summit in November the UK will need a credible plan for decarbonising transport. Our thinking needs to change if we are to rise to the scale of the challenge.
Join us for a webinar series which will consult widely on the five key themes that emerged in the recent Greener Transport Solutions publication Rising to the Challenge: Achieving net zero will require new thinking, creative solutions and systemic change.
- The decarbonisation of transport will involve changes to the wider economy.
- Technical solutions will be insufficient, we also need behaviour change.
- Fares and taxes should encourage people to make lower carbon travel choices.
- We must ensure a fair and just transition to net zero.
- Greater devolution will be a key driver of decarbonisation.
Hosted by Greener Transport Solutions, Addleshaw Goddard, Transport Times, Foundation for Integrated Transport & The Transport Knowledge Hub, the events will bring together leading academics, politicians, business leaders, consumer groups and think tanks to discuss what is needed to decarbonise transport. Experts will discuss and respond to questions from the Greener Transport Council.
The series will culminate in the Greener Transport Solutions publication of ‘A Manifesto for Decarbonising Transport’ to be published in the Autumn 2021.
