Transport is the largest contributor to carbon emissions in the UK.
But what is the industry doing to tackle the issue? What steps are we taking now to ensure we meet the target set out by the UK Government and Scottish Ministers to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in the UK as a whole/2045 in Scotland and meet the UK's Paris Agreement commitments? The countdown has started and we need to act now.
In these video series, hear from industry leaders as they tackle some of the key issues surrounding the road to net zero and how the Transport Sector can address the challenge to become carbon neutral across the whole of the UK by 2050.

Following the previous video which looked at the 'Scale of the Challenge' that the Transport Sector faces in reaching net zero by 2050, we now turn to look at 'Changing Human Behaviours' and what we all need to do on an individual basis to ensure the target is met. Listen to representatives from Atkins, Transport for London, The Scottish Infrastructure Commission and ScotRail as we talk about how the Transport industry can influence behaviours and what support is required to enable change.
In this first video, we look at the bigger picture and hear from Aviva Investors, Atkins, Network Rail, Associated British Ports, The Scottish Infrastructure Commission, Hitachi Rail and ScotRail as they discuss the scale of the challenge: what are the key challenges, is 2050 achievable at our current rate of progress and how do we get to net zero?
