COP 26 report
This week it has been confirmed the UK will become the first country in the world to commit to phasing out non-zero emissions HGVs, driving our transport system towards net zero and sparking our green industrial revolution.
- The UK government is committed to supporting the UK’s electric vehicle revolution and delivering on our world leading pledge to end the sale of all polluting road vehicles within the next two decades.
- That is why, combined with our 2030 pledge to phase out petrol and diesel cars and vans, the government is now going further and committing to the phasing out of non-zero emission heavy goods vehicles by 2040 – joined by twenty-four other countries who have agreed to move towards 100 per cent zero emission new car and van sales by 2040 or earlier.
- This commitment will drive forward our electric vehicle revolution – increasing the accessibility and inclusivity of electric vehicles and delivering on our cash, coal, cars and trees goals.
