Following the UK Government’s 2030/5 petrol/diesel phase-out announcement, the ratcheting up of 2035 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets and the publication of the long-awaited transport decarbonisation plan, the conference will examine whether the plan includes actions that will enable us to deliver the medium and long-term targets and what this transition will mean for road users and other stakeholders.
Contributors will be invited to offer ideas on the challenges to the successful delivery of the plan and actionable proposals for removing barriers to their achievement.
Conference themes and questions:
- ● Can the transport decarbonisation plan set UK on a trajectory to zero transport emissions?
- ● What are the key barriers to achievement of the plan’s provisions?
- ● What do the transport changes to come mean for individuals and groups of road users?
- ● What are the likely solutions to the challenges (hear from some leading proponents)?
- ● What will Zemo Partnership be doing to accelerate progress?
