Decarbonising Transport: Setting the Challenge

Released by the Department for Transport on 26 March, this 80-page paper provides an overview of the transport decarbonisation plan that will be published later in the year. The plan will be developed with a wide range of stakeholders over the next six months.

In the DfT's words, the 26 March paper sets out:

• how we intend to work with others to develop a transport decarbonisation plan
• the challenge we need to meet to reduce transport emissions and ensuring we reach net zero transport emissions by 2050
• reviews of existing climate policy in transport
• reviews of existing forecasts of future transport emissions from each mode of transport, plus as a whole

Responses to the paper have been written by Stephen Joseph OBE and Professor Greg Marsden.
