Green transport

The government has announced £54 million to fund the next generation of green trucks and buses to be developed here in the UK – securing thousands of high skilled green jobs, as we build back greener.

  • The UK is leading the world by developing cutting edge technology that will help to tackle climate change and lead to a green, competitive future for our automotive supply chain.
  • This £54 million investment will be targeted at innovative green projects across England, Wales and Northern Ireland – helping to secure nearly 10,000 jobs and while saving 45 million tonnes of CO₂. This announcement builds on the recent launch of the national Bus Back Better strategy and the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, both of which will help us shift to zero emission vehicles and decarbonise the UK’s transport networks.
  • These projects will not only help accelerate the wider application of greener technology in lorries and buses, but will also help generate the high-skilled jobs to level up communities across the UK while ensuring we build back greener from the pandemic.
