The Government must reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2022 and 80% by 2050. We know how the Government can meet the challenge.
Our policy package
We recommend a comprehensive package of transport policies, mostly extensions of current practices building on past successes. These would help the Government to reach the targets in the Climate Change Act and could form the basis of its first carbon budgets. The policies would also boost the green economy, increase energy security, support healthier lifestyles and create stronger communities.
Implementation of our policy would result in the following:
These reductions would be in line with those required for the UK generally to achieve 80% reduction in emissions by 2050.
