Why Transport?

Transport accounts for around one-third of total annual carbon emissions in the UK. To hit our net-zero carbon targets, consider how to avoid travel within cities and towns as much as possible through greater physical proximity, co-locating services and telecommuting alternatives. Shift from energy-intensive private vehicles to public, shared and non-motorised transport. And thirdly, improve the types of vehicles on the road by switching from combustion engines to cleaner electric vehicles powered by renewable energy.
