The Department for Transport has launched a request for ideas about the next steps to reducing emissions in transport and creating a decarbonisation plan ensuring we are net zero in emissions by 2050.
The Government are looking to decarbonise transport and want ideas to meet the challenge to reduce transport emissions. The consultation develops policy proposals and a coordinated plan to decarbonise transport. There is a review of existing climate policy in transport and of existing forecasts of transport emissions using each mode and a combined forecast.
The consultation and plan builds from the information in 'Decarbonising transport: setting the challenge' released in March 2020.
If you have any ideas, proposals or innovative suggestions, please do get in touch to with highlights of how this could work. Case studies from the UK or internationally, data, studies and statistics are welcome.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology Trustees propose submitting a response to this consultation and invite comments from Members who have expertise in this area and have studied the consultation documents. In its capacity as a professional body, the IET will confine itself to only addressing those questions that are within its area(s) of competence.
For more information and a summary of the questions, please refer to the consultation webpage.
Please respond no later than 9 am 15/08/20 to Paloma Cid, with "Creating a plan to decarbonise transport: call for ideas" in the subject line.
