Actions we are taking to cut carbon emissions in the transport sector, meet carbon budget obligations and achieve long-term change.



‘Low carbon transport: a greener future’ is a component of the ‘UK low carbon transition plan’. In this paper we acknowledge the challenges ahead for the transport sector and outline plans for a future low carbon transport system.

In this paper we set out the actions we are taking to cut emissions in line with meeting our obligations under carbon budgets for the period to 2022. And we outline how we are putting the building blocks in place for longer-term change for the period to 2050.
