Towards Net Zero - a greener transport plan

Today, the Conservative government has launched a world-leading transport decarbonisation plan, setting out a credible pathway for the whole transport sector to reach net zero by 2050, creating cleaner jobs and communities as we build back greener.

  • Decarbonisation should not be about stopping people doing things, like driving or flying, but about doing the same things differently, to reduce emissions, create new jobs and make our communities nicer places to live.

  • That is why the government has announced a world-leading ‘greenprint’ to cut emissions throughout the whole transport sector, including consulting on phasing out the sale of new diesel and petrol HGVs by 2040, creating a net zero rail network by 2050, ensuring net zero domestic aviation emissions by 2040, and leading the transition to green shipping.  
     
  • This will help to create and support highly skilled jobs in clean transport production, clean up the air in our communities, and create sustainable economic growth as we build back greener.
