Government Transport Decarbonisation Strategy - July 2021
The DfT have recently published this plan covering all aspects of transport decarbonisation. The announcement says it's 'not about stopping people doing things: it’s about doing the same things differently', and 'we must deliver a step change in the breadth and scale of our ambition to reduce transport’s GHG emissions to reach net zero'.
This research paper in partnership and part-funded by the Royal Town Planning Institute 'explores how different places can achieve an 80% reduction in surface transport emissions by 2030, as part of a pathway to net zero by 2050'. It uses modelling to investigate the potential of interventions in different setting types, and evidences the key role of spatial planning in transport decarbonisation.
